La recomposition des allégeances tribales dans le Moyen-Euphrate syrien (1958-2007)

Abstract : The Reworking of Tribal Allegiances in the Middle Euphrates Region of Syria (1958-2007). How have tribal allegiances been reworked in Jazira (Syria) following a half century of « socialist » experimentation (land reforms, the Baath Revolution and the « Euphrates Project ») for creating new forms of social affiliation unrelated to primary bonds ? Most societies in the Middle Euphrates area are still shaped around tribes. Their internal hierarchies have changed as a function of their allegiance to the regime and the advantages (mainly in relation to land rights) thus obtained. The results of election in March 2003 and April 2007 shed light on the strategies of the candidates who played on different clans in order to increase their chances of winning the seats up for vote.
