Research information:

My research looks at social movements and networks of civil society actors promoting food sovereignty, social and environmental justice. I am particularly interested in peasant and citizen movements in Brazil and Mexico involved with La Via Campesina and the World Social Forum (WSF). My work seeks to better understand how these actors are promoting and putting into practice alternative models of agriculture and economic development  that take into account the needs and hopes of local communities and their environment.

Research information:

My interest is in examining how intellectual property rights or legal frameworks for governance and protection of knowledge have diverse impacts on many spheres, including but not limited to agriculture, food security, biotechnology, biodiversity conservation, biosafety, human rights (access to health, education and benefits of technology/scientific advancements, etc). I am also concerned with the nature of interaction or impact that intellectual property rights have in regard to developmental aspirations of marginalized peoples, especially indigenous and local communities across the globe. Most of my work focus on mapping and understanding the interface of intellectual property and development. I also work within the broader international political relations of power between Africa, indeed, the global south and the global north.
