PhD Thesis

PhD Supervisor & 2nd Reader: Dennis Rodgers and Julie Billaud

Expected completion date: 2023-2024




Alice Daquin is a PhD candidate at the Anthropology and Sociology department of the Graduate Institute Geneva. She has been interested in youth, urban and political sociology and gender studies. After a master thesis on the problematised youth in the "quartiers populaires" and a professional experience in popular education, she has become a member of the ERC project: "Gangs, Gangsters and Ganglands: Towards a Global Comparative Ethnography". Her doctoral project examines the way women living in poor neighborhoods are linked with gang members and how they navigate the coexistence of drug traffic activities. Based on situational and network analysis, life stories and mapping exercices, her fieldwork takes the form of an ethnography in a poor neighborhood of Marseille, in the south of France.
