This paper investigates the neoliberalization of the Balkan forestry sector within the context of illegal logging practices. The experiences and aspirations of individuals implicated in such activities are used as a basis for interrogating the privatization and marketization of forest resources, and the rise of corruption. The broader purpose of the paper is to explore the ‘recombinant’ nature of capitalism in this part of the world, thanks to which neoliberalism is ’challenged and changed by its encounter with nature’
