  • 01/02/19 Party politics and the legacies of insurgency in El Salvador

  • Ralph Sprenkels, Centre for Conflict Studies | Utrecht University

    Based on Sprenkels's recent book "After Insurgency", this talk features an "ethnographic tour" of FMLN internal party politics and of its performance in government. The FMLN's reliance on former insurgent networks to build and expand the political party allowed it to develop an electorally competitive political machine, but also partially undermined the party's capacity to enforce political change in El Salvador. +INFO

  • WORKSHOP FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS

  • Studying water as a transdisciplinary challenge, from environmental governance to knowledge and territorial politics

    This workshop is intended to bring a space of dialogue for young researchers (PhD students, Postdoc…) working on issues related to water resources governance, commons, knowledge politics, territoriality, and justice. Indeed, water is often connecting various environmental challenges for example in the case of mining protests, social movements, urban-rural connections, or climate justice. Therefore, thinking about water as a transversal and connecting challenge in grassroots mobilizations, environmental movements and multi-actor partnerships can bring valuable insights to the academic debate. +INFO
