  • Profile

    Pieter Lagerwaard is a PhD Candidate at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). As a PhD candidate he studies, from an ethnographic point of view, the European landscape of Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs). He is part of the research project 'FOLLOW: Following the Money from Transaction to Trial,' funded by the European Research Council (ERC). Previously, he conducted ethnographic fieldwork in India, focusing on the financial market of Mumbai. His work on financial anthropology was published in the Journal of Cultural Economy.

    Academic background: For both his bachelor in anthropology and research master in social science (cum laude), I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork in India. The former research project was concerned with migration and was a collaborative effort with the ‘Provincial Globalization’ research team, under supervision of the late Prof. Dr. Mario Rutten (see http://www.provglo.org/ and this publication). The master project contributed to the growing field of financial anthropology by studying the financial market of Mumbai. Through daily interaction with stockbrokers I observed how local brokers experience and ‘negotiate’ the evolving nature of global finance (see this publication).

    The PhD is part of the project 'FOLLOW: Following the Money from Transaction to Trial,' led by Prof. Dr. Marieke de Goede (UvA) and funded by the European Research Council. FOLLOW studies the path of the suspicious financial transaction across private and public spheres through the analysis of how knowledge is formed and mobilized by banks, FIUs and courts. FOLLOW is interested in the everyday life of security practices and the complex dilemmas faced by the actors at stake, and relies on participant observation coupled with in-depth semi-structured interviews.
