The Experience of Protest: Masculinity and Agency Among Sudanese Refugees in Cairo

Cairo Papers Vol. 29, No. 4 Martin Timothy Rowe

In the autumn of 2005, a group of young male Sudanese refugees organized a protest against the policies of the UNHCR in Cairo. Using the protest as a vehicle for exploring the difficulties encountered by young Sudanese men, and their motivations for initiating or joining the protest, this study examines the ways in which pursuit of personal and collective agency intersect with ideals of masculine respectability and attainment.
