Currently, my research is mainly focused on what I call “post-war agrarian capitalism”, a term pointing at the contradictions stemming from the convergence of warless situations, post-conflict development policies and struggles for land. In parallel, I also work on the mobilizations against ‘land grabbing’, both on the basis of a field research in Côte d’Ivoire, and a reflection on the transnational circulation of activists and claims.

Two previous projects, which dealt with the place of non-statutory violence in state formation and the politics of drug traffic in Colombia, also appear in this page.
