Back to overview

My research interests are in the politics of natural resources: land, water, forests, sub-soil minerals – examined in the era of the global resource rush (land grabbing, the rise of extractivism, agro-extractivism) and climate change (focusing on the politics of narratives around mitigation and adaptation) – with special emphasis on how poor people understand about their agency (autonomy and capacity) to understand their situation – and change it. I also have work and interest in the various forms of political reactions by poor people towards dynamic changes in the political economy (land/property, labour, income, reproduction) of natural resources, including in studying – and at the same time, working with – social movements. I also have interest and ongoing work on the converging social movements partly in reaction to the parallel and overlapping processes of global resource rush and climate change mitigation narrative: agrarian movements, environmental movements, fishers movements, food sovereignty movements. I work and continue to hone my intellectual skills along the tradition of scholar-activism.
