Dr Nick Nisbett

Nick Nisbett is a senior research fellow at the Institute of Development Studies, where he co-leads a research group on Health and Nutrition. His work has considered narratives of IT-led development in India and broader narratives of nutrition and food security within South Asia, including the interconnections   between national policy discourse, broader aid narratives and the constitution of embodied subjectivities and material realities. His current work considers the realisation of rights around food and nutrition in India and in Bangladesh via community food, nutrition and health programmes. An example of a recent publication is "A Narrative Analysis of the Political Economy Shaping Policy on Child Undernutrition in India" (Development & Change, 2017)
