During 2011/12, East Bank tribal youths in Jordan mobilized a new wave of political opposition through the Hirak movement. Reflecting generational change in their communities, as well as the historical erosion of tribal-state relations, these protest groups demanded sweeping democratic reforms from the monarchy.

This changing dynamic of tribal politics holds enormous implications for politics and stability within the Hashemite kingdom.
