Les récits de souffrance chez les réfugiés syriens au Liban: Les dimensions existentielles du sacrifice de soi au croisement du religieux et du politique

Abstract : A witness of Syrian refugee's suffering exiled in Lebanon: the conception of self‑sacrifice to the crossroads between politics and religion. Syrian refugees' exile in Lebanon allows providing a dynamic ethnography of sufferings. Refugees are a long‑time topic for academic research on Middle East but their sufferings are indirectly tackled through memory. The current suffering of Syrian refugees is managed by humanitarian actors who leave no room for social aspects of suffering. The study of social suffering reveals modern and secular assumptions in psychological management of trauma. Suffering is conceived in secular terms as passive and individual whereas refugees give a collective and/or religious signification which reveal active relations to suffering. This conception allows political self‐sacrifice. Thus the study of suffering paves the way for a larger analysis of relations between religion and politics at stake in engagement.
