Sample text

Moroccans are basically all individualists. excerpt 12 – 27/06/2008 Mohammed Chakkar may not consider the average Moroccan to be completely apolitical but it is clear that his concept of depoliticisation performs an important function in his definition of a preferred mode of emancipatory politics. Many of my interviewees seem to consider political awareness to be a matter of degrees. But it can also be a question of modality, a matter of fundamentally different practices and techniques for articulating one’s sense of self and politics.

So I really think ideological differences … . But I would, well, according to me it can be named like that. That way it becomes visible, [the fact] that there are differences within the community … . Also for that youngster … because it’s not that obvious you know … who thinks “yeah we’re all the same and there is just one Islam and there are …”, while that’s not the case eh. excerpt 13 – 22/08/2008 Nadia describes the type of subjectivity developed within the context of JVI in terms of “a type of … personal politics between quotation marks”.

Put differently, if I was to understand the complexities of the minority debate as interpreted and dealt with by my interviewees, I had to take their interpretive analyses into account. Such an individualised approach to political engagement and public debate is not easy to carry out. It is certainly easier said than done. At the beginning of this chapter, I suggested that the self could be considered in terms of a working framework. This framework is at least in part oriented towards the establishment of a sense of coherence with respect to itself and with respect to the discursive world surrounding it.
