Research Interests: 

Critical development theories; the international aid industry; the political economy of natural resource extraction.

 

My research examines the relationship between international aid and the foreign or private appropriation of natural resources in countries of the Global South. Using the framework of political economy, I explore how aid programming and donor country policies influence industrial development in mining, oil and gas. I am particularly interested in tracing competing visions of the aid paradigm by analyzing its role in facilitating extractive industry along three key axes: 1) international security; 2) market integration; and 3) as a spatial fix for capitalist expansion.

 

Key words: international aid, extractive industries, political economy, critical development studies
