As a consequence of land financialization and the general industrialization of the countryside, rural populations have been exposed to various forms of violence in recent decades. In my research I am interested in these violent transformations and new forms of reactive violence in the countryside. On the one hand, I look at the actors and the clashes between the investors, governments, and international organizations behind these transformations, and the social movements trying to resist their policies. On the other hand, I am also interested in the rural tendency to give authoritarian answers to ecological and economic crises.
