I am interested in conflicts and new forms of violence in rural areas.

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.
