Saoussen Fray Amor

Associate Researcher

Saoussen Fray Amor is a doctoral student in sociology under a joint supervision of the University of Tunis (UT) in Tunisia and the University of Pau and the Pays de l’Adour (UPPA) in France. She obtained her Master’s degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology from the Institut Supérieur des Sciences Humaines et Sociales de Tunis (ISSHT) in 2022. Her dissertation, entitled “Engagement politique des jeunes tunisiens après 2011”, explores the new forms of militant engagement that have emerged in Tunisia since the 2010-2011 winter revolution. Published by the Nirvana publishing house and the Faculté des Lettres et des sciences humaines de Sousse, this work examines in particular the shift from militancy to activism, the crisis of the left, and militant nomadism.

Her thesis, currently being prepared under the supervision of Professors Sihem Najar and Stéphanie Déchezelles, explores the intergenerational transmission of political commitment in Tunisia. She is interested in the family and social dynamics that influence the political trajectories of young activists.
