Research interests

My research focuses on two major strands related to the profound social, political and economic transformation processes taking place in the global governance system, namely:

  1. questions of global justice and democracy
  2. the governance responses to global challenges.

These global challenges include infectious diseases, global energy patterns, global food production processes, environmental degradation and greenhouse gas emissions.

My research examines the limitations and obstacles present in the global governance system in tackling these global environmental challenges. At the same time, my research explores how more innovative and democratic governance responses can be developed to confront the ecological root causes of all these intrinsically interlinked global challenges.
