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:

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:

As an agronomist by training, with a PhD in genetics and plant breeding, I’ve worked in a wide array of contexts and countries. I have held long-term positions in Ivory Coast, Réunion Island, Canada, Brazil and France, as well as gone on missions in close to 40 countries. My scientific efforts have centred mostly on corn and sugar cane. Over time, given my responsibilities as a director of research, I became interested in the links between the social sciences and agronomics in general, with a special focus on the interaction between social dynamics, governance models and global transformations in rural settings.

Over the past four years, I worked as research and strategy director for CIRAD (Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement), which focuses on the prime issues surrounding the role of agriculture in southern hemisphere nations, both from the discipline’s traditional perspectives (production, transformation, food production and processing, etc.) and from its newer angles (environmental impact, ecological services, poverty reduction, land management, multi-functionality, etc.). At CIRAD, I played an active role in recasting and redirecting the research issues and scientific strategies of the major French, European and international centres and institutes in the field.

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.
