In this talk, Arar shows that sovereignty is a relational process enacted through quotidian practices not only from the top-down—by government and international officials—but also from the bottom-up through the daily decisions of refugees and citizens. Her research, conducted as an ethnography of the state, utilizes in-depth, semi-structured interviews in Arabic and English, triangulating interviews with Syrian refugees, Jordanian citizens, and UN, NGO, and government officials.
