La politique étrangère d’Abdallah II de Jordanie : un pragmatisme favorable à la stabilité du pays

Abstract : Abdallah II’s foreign policy shows pragmatism, offsetting some the Kingdom’s structural weaknesses. Jordanian diplomacy rests upon a strategic alliance with the Unite States of America, conditioned by the peace treaty signed by Israel and Jordan in 1994, and strong relations with the Gulf countries. These alliances enable the capitation of a strategic income which favours by its nature, the balance in the Kingdom’s budget. As stability provides credibility, Jordan’s diplomatic capabilities are strengthened. Thus, pro-west diplomacy makes it easier for Jordan to keep stable and to speak louder on the international level. On the domestic side, redistribution of wealth has shifted from an overall system to one targeting the Transjordanian part of the population via the military. Army acts as a means of redistribution to soldiers and relatives, strengthening their allegiance to the regime. This process of political allegiance partly counterbalances the unpopular pro-west orientation of the diplomacy.
