    Contested sites, land claims and economic development in Poum, New Caledonia
    Kowasch, M ; BATTERBURY, S ; Neumann, M ; Neale, T ; Turner, S (Routledge - Taylor & Francis, 2016)
    Property relations are often ambiguous in postcolonial settings. Property is only considered as such if socially legitimate institutions sanction it. In indigenous communities, access to natural resources is frequently multidimensional and overlapping, subject to conflict and negotiation in a ‘social arena’. Settler arrivals and new economic possibilities challenge these norms and extend the arena. The article analyses conflicts and negotiations in the French overseas territory of New Caledonia in the light of its unique settler history and economic activity, focussing on the little-studied remote northern district of Poum on the Caledonian main island Grande Terre. In this region the descendants of British fishermen intermarried with the majority Kanak clans. We illustrate the interaction between customary conflicts, European settlement, struggles for independence, and a desire for economic development. Customary claims are in tension with the attractions of economic growth and service delivery, which has been slow in coming to Poum for reasons largely outside the control of local people.

    L’environnement dans les géographies anglophone et française: émergence, transformations et circulations de la political ecology
    Kull, C ; BATTERBURY, S ; Blanc, G ; Demeulenaere, E ; Feurhahn, W (Publications de la Sorbonne, 2017)
    The purpose of this chapter is to trace the historical and socio-political context of “environment-in-geography”, including key moments as well as epistemological and institutional debates. We highlight in particular a sub-field called “political ecology”. In doing so, we transgress geography’s disciplinary boundaries, as the roots of this approach are found as much in anthropology as in geography, and the current political ecology community of practice spans the social sciences and beyond. But as this book addresses a Francophone audience, and given the important role of political ecology in recent developments in French environmental geography, this disciplinary focus is justified. We conclude with a section on geography in France.

    Community bicycle workshops and “invisible cyclists” in Brussels
    Batterbury, S ; Vandermeersch, I ; Golub, A ; Hoffmann, ML ; Lugo, AE ; Sandoval, GF (Routledge, 2016-07-15)
    "Community bike workshops" are a little-studied aspect of bicycle justice. They provide facilities for almost anybody to learn bike maintenance skills at low cost, aided by volunteers, and using recycled parts. Fieldwork in Brussels, Belgium shows that bike workshops combines pro-bike activism with varying levels of professionalization and engagement with mainstream organizations. Many workshop organizers have problems maintaining a premises and attracting good volunteers. Because these are autonomous organizations and social hubs, they allow "rights" to mobility to be nurtured as well as providing low cost transport solutions.
