Dr Sean Fox

Political Economy of Development & Urban Geography

My research revolves around four interrelated themes: the process of urbanisation, the political economy of development, contentious politics, and urban governance, particularly (but not exclusively) in Africa and Asia. I am committed to an interdisciplinary approach to social research, drawing on theoretical insights and methodological tools from the fields of demography, economics, geography, political science and sociology.
