  • Profiel

    Researcher, Anthropology and Sociology of Non-Western Societies.
    Affiliated to the Moving Matters research programme group.
    My interests include social movements and collective action, land rights, rural change, and livelihood strategies of peasants and workers. Regional interests: Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines.

    My research in the Philippines spans more than four decades (1977 till the present)  with a focus, through time, on rural popular mobilization, guerrilla politics, and counterinsurgency at the community level; artisans and entrepreneurs in commercialized crafts; and women workers in plantation agriculture.

    In 2011-2015, I was involved in the NWO-WOTRO research programme: ‘(Trans)national Land Investments in Indonesia and the Philippines: Contested Access to Farm Land and Cash Crops’  as a program coordinator, together with Gerben Nooteboom.
