I am a lecturer in Politics and International Development.
My research focuses on the interactions between government institutions, civil society and social relations. My current research is on rural labour and critiques of neo-liberal approaches to poverty reduction. It analyses how class relations in India are modified by state and civil society interventions, and broader processes of agrarian change and social and economic development.
Areas of teaching, research and PhD supervision: state-society relations; state anti-poverty programmes and social protection; social movements and civil society; labour relations and agrarian change.
Governance and civil society; migrant labour, agrarian change, decentralisation, social movements, microfinance; state anti-poverty programmes (social protection); critiques of neo-liberal approaches to poverty reduction; India.
Research Groups: Politics, Governance and the State
