Research Statement

My research examines the international political economy of global development. I am specifically concerned with ongoing shifts in policy field of development cooperation, including: the rise of new state and private actors; the privatisation of a hitherto public policy; transformations in state form and function, and; shifts in the nature of development finance. My research asks: how is the field changing? Why? And, ultimately, who benefits? I am particularly interested in the practices and discourses of South-South Cooperation, and how these are perceived across the so-called Global South. 

My second strand of research examines global governance: the matrix of institutions, norms, ideas, and practices  beyond the level of the nation-state. Here I am concerned with the challenges facing established structures of cooperation, and the rise of new institutional alternatives such as multi-stakeholder practices. I ask: to what extent and why are traditional sites of cooperation breaking down? How can we analyse the legitimacy and effectiveness of new forms of governance? In the face of interrelated climate, economic, and societal crises, what are the prospects for more transformative arrangements of governance?
