Professor Robin Broad's training in development economics and ecology informs her "trans-disciplinary" and multi-level research. Specifically, she focuses on public and private structures of global economic governance; these structures' impact on economics, people, and their environments; and the movements challenging these structures. Current research explores socially, environmentally, and economically responsible policies for extractives/mining (focusing on El Salvador and Costa Rica, among other countries) and for agriculture (focusing on the Philippines and subsistence grains). This year, she continues her work with a Guggenheim fellowship.
