Bio/Research

One of her main research interests is social movements and collective action. She has done research on small and landless farmers’ efforts to deepen and defend land reform, and maintains an interest in the fate of existing land reforms under state efforts to unravel them. She is also interested in collective resistance to neoliberal globalization in Central America, particularly trade integration and privatization of public services. Issues of gender justice in the developing country context are another area of interest, and have been a theme of several courses she has taught. With funding from SSHRC she is currently carrying out research on the impact of neoliberal policies on the work conditions of nurses in El Salvador and Nicaragua.
