CAPSAHARA project: Critical Approaches to Politics, Social Activism and Islamic Militancy the Western Saharan Region (European Research Council STG-716467-2016)
This project proposes an analysis of the reconfigurations established in the socio-political vocabulary of the western Saharan region from the “post-empire” to the contemporary period. The project is interdisciplinary, drawing from the social sciences, including anthropology, history, and political science. It foregrounds ethnographically situated analyses of the articulations of globalized processes and local knowledge and practice. The CAPSAHARA project should produce an analysis of the social and political structures shared in the region, of the local variations of those structures (based on case studies), their specific configurations based on social markers such as gender, age, and class; in order to understand the recent articulation of the region’s social and political structures with broader and often exogenous political vocabularies. The project’s results should enable the different contexts under study to be integrated into the wider maps of current scientific research, providing, at the same time the dissemination of its outputs to an extended audience.
