Igor Rogelja completed his doctoral studies at SOAS, University of London, where he researched urban redevelopment in China and Taiwan. He remains interested in the politics of space and is currently involved in several research projects examining the effects of Chinese infrastructural investments in Southeast Europe, as well as more widely in the so-called ‘Belt Road Initiative’.

Apart from empirical work, Igor is currently working on bringing insights from the anthropology of infrastructure into international relations to better conceptualize how large infrastructural projects interact with both political and physical space, particularly within the context of the emergence of ‘alternative globalizations’ and challenges to the existing rules-based order.
