Subvertir le consentement. Itinéraires des femmes des camps de réfugiés palestiniens en Jordanie (1948-2001)

Abstract : Subverting Consent: Women in Palestinian Refugee Camps in Jordan (1948–2001) - In Palestinian refugee communities, and notably in camps, families have displayed the image of family permanence since the 1948 historical rupture and exodus. This traditional discourse on family has been reinforced by most political actors in the Kingdom to strengthen nation building or nationalist claims. Contradicting the effective image conveyed on and by camp society, refugee women are keys actors of family and social change in the camps. They assert their itineraries and challenge men’s power, arguing that men have been unable to fulfil their protective role towards them. In the context of exile, this “popular feminism” is relying on various social and economic resources but builds upon traditional family values and family identity. Thus, women of the camps use advantageously the gap between images and social facts and quietly but effectively overcome family power. They subvert the given consent to family ideology.
