Research Fellow

As a research fellow with Cosmos, my research is embedded in the project “Shifting Forms of Political Violence: a Socio-Spatial Relational Approach” led by dr. Lorenzo Bosi, with my work focusing on the case of the Provisional IRA.

My previous position was as a research assistant at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, working on the FP7 “Memory, Youth, Political Legacy And Civic Engagement” (MYPLACE) project.

My upcoming publications address topics of self-limitation in non-state actor behaviour, strategic innovation and adjustment of non-state entities, temporal mechanisms within informal governance regimes, as well as an expansion of securitisation theory, and my upcoming conference presentations problematise the implications of increased state repression of activists for researchers’ interviewing processes. In terms of geographic interests, my work focuses on Northern Ireland, South-Eastern Europe, and Iran.

From the Rainy Place to the Burnt Palace: How Social Movements Form their Political Strategies. The Case of the Six Federations of the Tropic of Cochabamba

Leonidas Oikonomakis
Exploring the case of the cocaleros of the Chapare, this article argues that more emphasis should be placed on mechanisms that are internal to the movements, such as: (a) the resonance of other political experiences at home and abroad, (b) internal struggles for ideological hegemony, and (c) the political formation of their grassroots.
