Biografie

Do-It-Yourself-Development

I am Associate Professor at the Rural Sociology Group, Wageningen University, the Netherlands and Project Professor at the Asian Platform for Global Sustainability & Transcultural Studies at Kyoto University in Japan.

My research interest is ‘Do-It-Yourself Development’, which refers to people’s attempts to shape their own future. I developed the concept in relation to the wide range of practices through which people i) challenge inequalities and injustices and ii) create and maintain a ‘livable life’ under conditions of insecurities and uncertainties. This ‘Do-It-Yourself Development’ refers to both individual and collective attempts to make other futures possible, and is distinguished from state and market as order (future) making institutions.

In my work I have a particular interest in spatial network of activities and connections that actors create and operate in, their ‘social space’, as I term it. My aim is to better understand the significance of self-organized practices for addressing inequalities and injustices.

My main geographic area focus is Turkey, Kurdistan and the Middle East.
