Research information:

I look at people's mobility inside and between states. This includes immigration (and related topics like foreign credential recognition), refugees (and statelessness and denationalisation), family reunification, detention, mobility-related technologies (like identity documents), relevant state and international law, colonialism, and historical as well as present barriers to mobility. Beyond this broad subject, I have experience with various aspects of social policy in the Middle East: health (particularly environmental and reproductive health), education (curriculum development), and sustainable development (water, wastewater, solid waste, noise and air quality, and occupational health).

Research information:

Dr. Rukhsana Ahmed’s research embraces the cross/trans/inter-disciplinary nature of communication scholarship, with specific focus on exploring the role of communication processes in improving health outcomes among marginalized communities and promoting broader social changes in international health contexts. She is particularly interested in the ways in which systems of beliefs, values, actions, and symbols are shared, or not, by people and how social groups influence communication in health care interactions. She is also interested in the ways in which people’s cultural selves become entwined with race, ethnicity, gender, and social class groups and shape their perceptions of health, illness, and health care. Although her research is deeply rooted in health communication, Dr. Ahmed is also actively involved in interdisciplinary and multisectoral projects and partnerships in other realms of communication, including immigrant integration, multicultural media, and religious diversity.

Research information:

My research is in international relations and international political economy. I study international finance with a particular interest in economic crises, the politics of inflation and central banking, and the power of economic ideas. I often try to understand present debates and issues through historical analysis—and am currently studying the early days of neoliberalism in the Reagan and Thatcher governments, which in many ways is the crucible for the present moment.

 

I am also drawn to trying to make sense of things that are not quite what they seem in politics today—for example looking at the central role of ignorance and failure in policymaking today.

 

My current research is motivated by a desire to understand the difficulties of our present moment by tracing the links between democracy, politics and the economy.

Research information:

I currently research the range of positions that investors take to respond to climate. These include incorporating ESG in their investment policies, engaging with companies, or divesting from fossil fuels entirely. I am currently involved on a large project about the fossil fuel divestment movement, comprised of students, faculty, and other activists worldwide who promote the exit from carbon intensive industries, in large institutional investors like pension funds, universities, and governments. I examine the range of responses to this movement, from doing nothing, to adopting a net-zero approach, all the way to committing to divest from energy companies.

His book, Distorted Descent: White Claims to Indigenous Identity, was selected as one of the ten most influential books published by the University of Manitoba Press in the past decade. His research continues to push the boundaries in the study of white identities, and as such, he is widely sought after as a public speaker on matters related to contemporary forms of settler colonialism.

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.
