The reality of political activism in a crucial, but often forgotten, Arab nation.

In Jordan, between censorship, repression and election rigging, political activism is limited - despite the democratic opening glimpsed in 1989.

In this important new book, Pénélope Larzillière charts the path of longstanding activists and shows how opposition has shifted from underground movements to a heavily controlled public sphere. In this book they discuss their motivations, their commitments and the consequences it has throughout their lives.

These political journeys serve to highlight the general conditions for political activism in a repressive regime, but also the meaning individuals attach to their commitments and their choses ideologies. How do future activists perceive different points of reference and how do they decide on their first affiliations?

Pénélope Larzillière est sociologue, chargée de recherche à l'Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD) et membre associée au CADIS (EHESS-CNRS).
