Publication: The Roads to Power: The Infrastructure of Counterinsurgency

It has been years since I posted here, but I am going to quickly provide some links to various publications related to the project here.

The first is an article that conjugates my research on transport infrastructures with my counterinsurgency research. “The Roads to Power: The Infrastructure of Counterinsurgency” was published in World Policy Journal 34(1) in 2017 and can be found here: https://doi.org/10.1215/07402775-3903604

Abstract: From the Napoleonic era to the present day, waging war has gone hand in hand with building roads. Laleh Khalili, politics professor at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London, describes how both U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Israeli authorities in Palestine use road construction to impose security and economic regimes on local populations.
