Summary of research interests and expertise

  • Theories of Global Capitalism
  • Theories of Modernity
  • International Politics
  • Crisis Theories
  • Critics of Neoliberalism
  • Social Movements
  • (Neo-)workerism

My research deals with global governance, the radicalization of neoliberalism, current transformations of the State, the precarization of life conditions and the role of finance in these processes. In addition, I also work on the different cycles of mobilization that have taken place on a global scale since 2008. More specifically, my research focuses on the French sequence, from the movement of 2016 against the labor reform to the Yellow Vests and beyond. This research aims to renew the conceptual apparatus we have for thinking neo- or post-workerist approaches. 

I am currently preparing materials for a book on the 2010s. In addition to reviews and articles on various blogs and sites, I am working on the sequence from the crisis of 2008 to the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, analysing the various social movements that have emerged on a global scale during the past decade, as well as the rise of the far-right.
