I am Francesco Colona, a PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam in the department of Human Geography, Planning and International Development and part of the Centre for Urban Studies at the same university. After a Bachelor degree in Sociology and Social Research at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, I completed a Research Master in Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam, with a research on organizational strategies of armed groups and their patterns of violence against civilians in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I am now part of a research team studying “Public-Private Security Assemblages and the Reconfiguration of Citizenship” in five different cities: Kingston (Jamaica), Recife (Brazil), Miami (USA), Jerusalem (Israel) and Nairobi (Kenya). In my own research I am focusing on the last city, where I try to understand - ethnographically - how citizenship and access to (or targeting from) security is reconfigured in hybrid forms of security governance, with a specific interest on the private security industry and the resident’s initiatives.
