Eric Cezne will present at the ERC-funded WorkinMining Workshop on ‘The micropolitics of South-South relations: negotiating ‘cooperation’ and making space around Vale S.A. in Mozambique’.

The workshop will be held at the University of Liège, Belgium, from 11-13 September.  It addresses the micropolitics of mining in four core areas that have been undertheorized: the ways in which mining capitalism is lived, enacted and reproduced; the links between the politics of labour and other political, economic and social arenas; the (dis)connections between local experiences and national political economies; and the relationship between local mining politics and the political formation of the state.
