As a contribution to a new open access book about the SDGs, The Palgrave Handbook of Development Cooperation for Achieving the 2030 Agenda, a new chapter on women’s empowerment in Bangladesh available here.
I research and write about global development, often about Bangladesh. I currently work as a Research Professor at the Accountability Research Center at American University in Washington DC, on leave from the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex in Brighton, England.
I have researched elite perceptions of poverty, food and fuel riots, disaster politics (cyclones, famine, industrial disaster), workers’ rights, women’s empowerment and the role of civil society in development.
This site hosts some of my publicly available work, and links to places where you can find details of the rest.
