Examining the diverse changes and consequences of globalization across multiple jurisdictions has been a primary focus of my collaborative research and conference presentations. At the Robarts Centre, I have collaborated with scholars in Latin America, India, Europe and China. Comparative work is essential for acquiring a comprehensive grasp of globalization, Washington Consensus goals and outcomes, and the social impacts of neo-liberalism on new citizenship practices. Here you will find links to my own and other scholars’ research as presented at several major academic conferences hosted at York University recently.
The Summer Institutes on hemispheric integration and social cohesion brought to York leading experts from Latin America to examine the contradictory consequences of markets for national societies. These scholars were very interested in Canada as a ‘Northern Model’ of capitalism, with its own distinguishing characteristics. It is an area that requires a great deal of further research and study.
