Mohammed ElHajji

University of Lille

As a doctor of political science at the IEP in Paris, I defended a thesis on the links between mobilization processes and identity building among the West Indies in France and Puerto Ricans in the United States. My current research has two main areas of focus. On the one hand, it is a historical sociology of the State in France and the United States from their Caribbean territories (French West Indies and Puerto Rico) and on the other hand, an analysis of the various issues raised by the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States (with my colleague Nicolas Martin-Breteau).
