Professor Yvon Le Bot, joined CRER in March 2010 as a Marie Curie Fellow. He is a sociologist, is a member of the Centre d’Analyse et d’Intervention Sociologiques, CADIS (Ecole des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales/ Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris). Since 1968, he has carried out extensive field work in Colombia, Bolivia, Haiti, Guatemala and Mexico, and numerous missions in other countries in the region, in particular for the CNRS, the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the United Nations. He has been engaged in comparative and analytical studies, focusing on community issues, modernity, violence, armed conflicts, ethnic questions and social movements. His current research is on cultural movements and globalization in Latin America; social and cultural actors among Latin-American migrants in the United States. He is the author of several books on Latin America, including Educación e ideología in Colombia (1979), La guerre en terre maya (1992), Violence de la modernité en Amérique latine (1994), Le rêve zapatiste (1997, seven foreign versions), Indiens: Chiapas>Mexico>Californie (2002), La grande révolte indienne (2009) and has participated in numerous collective publications. He analysed wars between and within communities in Une société fragmentée ? (M. Wieviorka ed., 1997); the relationship between armed conflict and movements based on identity in Guerres et sociétés. Etats et violence après la guerre froide (P. Hassner and R. Marchal eds, 2003); the ambiguity of forms of behaviour in Mexico in the face of globalization in Un autre monde… (M. Wieviorka ed., 2003). The title of his project is: Globalisation, Trans-national Migrants and Cultural Reconstructions.

Summary of the project: GLOBALMIGRANTS is a comparative research about migrants in Europe coming from countries of the South and migrants in United States coming from Latin American and Caribbean countries. GLOBALMIGRANTS intends to study the forms, meanings and limitations of collective action and cultural invention amongst transnational migrants today, during recent years and within the context of the crisis. What are the processes of deconstruction and reconstruction of the individual and collective identities of nomad migrants? How can individuals and groups who are part of the global flows which criss-cross countries of the First World become the protagonists of social conflicts and creators of representations of themselves, of the countries within which they circulate and of the world ?

GLOBALMIGRANTS focus on the subjectivity of the migrants, consider migration as a self-construction, put themselves in the point of view of the migrants and intend to understand their own perception of their experience. The artistic creations are one of the ways that allow us to come the nearest to that experience, be it be cultural products of the migrants, or works of art which take them as themes, and consider them as subjects and not as objects of knowledge.

 

Dr Saniye Dedeoglu joined CRER in Summer 2010 as a Marie Curie Fellow. She gained her PhD degree in 2005 from the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London) based on her research examining women’s garment work in Istanbul. She has extensively researched Turkish family-owned businesses and female employment during her PhD research. Her research Women Workers in Turkey: Global Industrial Production in Istanbul has been published in 2007 by I.B. Tauris. She then worked as a research fellow in the Department of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Southampton for an EU-funded research examining the impact of informal work on social cohesion. She is currently working as an Assistant Professor at the University of Mugla, Turkey. The Marie Curie fellowship will focus on her project entitled: Migrants, Work and Social Inclusion. This research aims to examine the relationship between gender, labour in the ethnic economy and the social inclusion of migrants in the wider society. With special reference to the Turkish community in Britain, this research will focus on the relationship between Turkish women’s work and their position in British society, through focusing on how ethnically based employment affects their capacity to become socially integrated in the dominant society.

Dr Salma Belaala has joined CRER as a Marie Curie Fellow on November 2010. The fellowship will focus on her project entitled: Cultural Approach of Radical Islamism in the Context of European Pluralism: Radical Versus Moderate Muslims. Summary of Project: The radical Islamism is often presented in the political debate through the prism of religion or geopolitics. Following March 11, 2004 Madrid attacks the European commission has, for the first time, assumed this phenomenon to be the expression of the problem of radicalisation.

Moreover, this phenomenon is analysed in the global strategic debate without taking into account the anthropological knowledge of the radicalisation at the local and national levels. Our project consists in filling this gap by leading an empirical, innovative and independent study of the cultural process of Islamist radicalisation in Europe.

The Islamist radicalization is presented in the numerous studies in social sciences as the revival or the continuity of the ancient Islamic tradition or of the classical Islamic religious. We intend to confront in the empirical way the cultural tradition and the Islamism.

The radicalisation expresses itself by excluding the other, including the non radical Muslims. For us, this phenomenon raises the political question of alterity and ethnicity. Interdisciplinary our research project arises in the field the question of the emergence, in the democratic political contexts, of the new political forms of dissidence in cases of Moderates and Radicals Muslims in Spain, France and United-Kingdom.
