Postcolonial Hierarchies

Fabricio Rodríguez

is a Senior Researcher at the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute (ABI) in Freiburg. He holds a PhD in Political Science with a focus on International Relations from the University of Freiburg.

Prior to joining the Postcolonial Hierarchies network, Fabricio worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the BMBF-funded project ‚Bioeconomy & Global Inequalities‘ at the Institute of Sociology at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. His research and practical experience in international cooperation have drawn attention to how conflicts around land use, oil extraction, mining and biomass trade shape global inequalities and spatial reconfigurations across Latin America, Europe and China. His research in the Postcolonial Hierarchies network will explore the ways urban protests are entwined with the contestation of coloniality/modernity dynamics and how this relationship shapes violent processes of hierarchization in Latin America. Fabricio also coordinates the Knowledge in Dialogue(s) component of the network.
