Répression et changement des formes de militantisme : Carrières de remobilisation à gauche après 1980 en Turquie

Abstract : This article addresses the consequences of repression on activism. In order to do so, it analyses a type of ‘post-repression’ militant career: former leftist activists having become Alevist leaders in post-1980 Turkey. These trajectories fall somewhere between mere withdrawal from politics and radicalization. They are about post-repression reinvolvement, for other causes and with other, less oppositional, means - and involve multiple reconversions. The 1980 coup repression has impacted individual trajectories, without however, in this case, endangering the accumulation of resources in other spheres, especially in the professional realm. But it also had consequences on the development of political offer, the constraints of collective action and the conditions of activism. All those factors have shaped the ways those individuals could reconvert, or not, activist know-how, competences and values they had acquired previously. Analysing this type of career makes it possible to better understand some of the ‘productive effects’ of repression on patterns of activism.
