Professeur de sociologie, Université Libre de Bruxelles

At the intersection of sociology and intellectual history, my work focus on 20th century conceptualisations of the ‘social question’ and theories of social justice. I’m particularly interested in how new forms of knowledge, problematizations and political thought shape new conceptions of the state and techniques to govern social insecurity. Currently I’m working on a book offering the first global account of how Universal Basic Income went from an obscure idea confined to economic textbooks to a planetary movement. More generally, my work has been published in widely read magazines such as Jacobin, Los Angeles Review of Books, Dissent or Le Monde Diplomatique.
