Presentation

 

Loraine Kennedy’s current research is situated at the crossroads of political economy and political geography. Her work engages with three main research topics:  the social and spatial implications of subnational economic development strategies in India and in international comparison; the actors and processes driving urban transformations using a multiscalar lens; metropolitan governance and local state capacity in India. Research on the latter topic in particular has been carried out in the framework of joint research programs (mainly « chance2sustain »), often involving efforts of international comparison, including but not limited to “emerging” economies.
