“Situated in debates on global urbanism, critical urban theory, and geographical political economy, my PhD dissertation examines the urban ‘solutions’ industry. It seeks to understand the normalization of ‘best practice’ in relation to the amorphousness of the ‘urban’. I am currently on fieldwork, undertaking a year-long, multi-sited ethnography of the global urban policy network across the porous categories of North and South.”
