Abstract :

Dr Myriam Ababsa will present the main findings of a fieldwork conducted with Kamel Dorai from October 2016 until April 2017 in the industrial zone of Sahab, 12 km south east of Amman. The interest of the research is that the city has welcome two waves of Syrian refugees: in 1982 after Hama events and in 2011-2017 during the civil war. She will show that those two waves have different investment strategies in the city, and different social profile.
