Academic Interests

Political and economic geographer with a focus on organised labour and social movements. I am interested in the capacity of trade unions to adapt and renew their political strategies during times of change, and more generally in how civil society organisations mobilise. My research portfolio includes empirical studies on the politics of state restructuring and urban informality in South Africa, flexibilisation of employment in the Norwegian labour market, and the role of religious civil society in peace-building in DR Congo.
