recent activities, fall 2011

The 2011 - 2012 academic session is now upon us. This year I will only be teaching our first year introduction to international development, Human inequality in global perspective. In addition to my administrative responsibilities as Chair of the Department, I will continue my advisory work for the Gender and Economic Policy Management Initiative of the United Nations Development Programme. This will see me travel to Korea, Bahrain and possibly Senegal as the Initiative is 'rolled out' into Asia and the Pacific as well as the Middle East and North African regions. I also will be continuing to revise my current research on land grabbing in the developing world. As usual, it will be busy.
