My academic research centres on the theory and practice of social movement activism or what I call the 'politics of resistance'. Emprically, I have done substantive research into the origins, political practices and ideological/normative agendas of two contemporary international social movements that is, the international indigenous people's movement and the women's reproductive rights movement. At the theoretical level, I interested in exploring the intersections between critical theory, so called postmodernist approaches and feminist theory for insights into the theory and practice of oppression and resistance. My current research focuses on women's activism within the so called 'anti-globalisation movement' or alternatively called 'global justice movement'.
