Laroque, Olivier

PhD candidate;
I am following my Masters research on the territorial arrangements of pastoralists in Tanzania with parallel doctoral research in Alberta, Canada, on property as well as territorial arrangements. By reformulating territoriality in terms of its internal functioning, as distinct from relations of land tenure, my aim is to compare the strategies of pastoralists, ranchers, and other stakeholders in pastoral/rural areas. Different perceptions of landscapes and their representations as symbolic capital is also a research interest of mine, in the context of rural and wilderness politics.
