Research Interests

Most of my academic research, at the present time, revolves around the comparative study of social movements including the indigenous peoples movements, green movements and women movements. Given the dearth of theoretical work on this topic within mainstream IR approaches, I have been drawn to the margins of the discipline in order to explore the insights of critical theory, feminist theory and so called postmodernist approaches. It is the debates within this theoretical terrain that I am most interested in.

Research Supervision

Theory and practice of global social movements, including green movements, women's movements, indigenous peoples movements and the so called 'global justice movement'; theories of globalisation; critical IR theory, including feminist theory, poststructuralist perspectives and neo-Marxist approaches.
