My research unfolds across 5 themes in contemporary and historical international politics and global political economy.

  • The political economy of international trade (with particular reference to the World Trade Organization);
  • Global governance, particularly its conceptualisation as well as historical and contemporary formations;
  • The political economy of development, principally so-called "emerging" powers, small island states and least developed countries;
  • Non-state actors, especially those that engage with global institutions; and
  • Popular culture and everyday representations of international relations.
