Politics of the BellyPolitics of the belly – The article was moved from Politics of the belly to Politics of the Belly in 2013, with the reason "Proper noun". It is, however, not a proper noun. English translations of two books by Jean-Francois Bayart, the author credited with popularising the term, both use lowercase: the second edition of The State in Africa, as seen here, and Global Subjects, as seen here.

  • Support, but this move should be uncontroversial surely? —Brigade Piron (talk) 19:20, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
Since it had been moved before, I thought it best to do it as a requested move. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 01:32, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
