Eric Cezne is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Human Geography and Spatial Planning, Utrecht University, and a visiting research fellow in INFRAGLOB. His expertise lies at the intersections of International Relations and Development Studies, underpinned by an interest in the politics of the Global South and South–South relations (broadly interpreted), particularly in contexts shaped by natural resource extraction.
Eric’s current research at Utrecht University explores how sustainability and low-carbon transitions (re-)shape ecosystemic (geo)politics, commodity value chains, and business-society relations in the Amazon Basin. Within INFRAGLOB, he is one of the co-editors behind the project’s book volume South-South Infrastructure Globalities: How transnational practices are (re)made in Africa.
Eric has published peer-reviewed articles in World Development and The Extractive Industries and Society, as well as policy-oriented research and popular pieces on behalf of the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO). He has conducted ethnographic research and fieldwork in Mozambique, Brazil, Haiti, and at the UN headquarters in New York, with experience in vulnerable and conflict affected situations.
