Current research

My main research interests are in the fields of democratization, the development of civil society in authoritarian and post-authoritarian states, transnational activism, and the (de)legitimation of international organizations. My current research focuses on processes of legitimation and delegitimation related to global governance institutions. More specifically, I am examining ASEAN and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.


I have been teaching and supervising widely on all levels, coordinating courses within the fields of international politics, comparative politics and development studies. Currently, most of my teaching is in the fields of development studies and international relations.
