Syrian street vendors and globalisation

Los vendedores ambulantes sirios y la globalización

Des colporteurs syriens dans la mondialisation


By studying the mobility of Syrian peddlers, this article aims to highlight the adaptability of a rural community subject to the vicissitudes of geopolitical crises in the Middle East. Their history, the regular reconfigurations of their trade network, as well as the origin of the food products they sell in the streets of Jordan, reveal a hidden facet of globalization. This aspect helps connect the cities and towns of the Global South that are far removed from the most publicised political and financial centers in the world.
