My works discuss the dialectical interplay between global and local human rights at the levels of norms, discourses, and practices, specifically in relation to market liberalisation and democratisation. More generally, my research interests include political agency, legal pluralism, and socio-economic equality. Recently I have written a number of articles attempting to situate agricultural modernisation in Papua in the context of global human rights struggles, and am currently working on the subject of consensus and dissensus on human rights in ASEAN.

Curriculum vitae

I was born in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and studied International Relations (BA) at University of Indonesia (2000). My master degree is on International Protection on Human Rights (LLM) from Utrecht University (2001). In 2009, I obtained my PhD from Utrecht University’s Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) where I wrote my dissertation on the right to development and development hazards. Before joining Leiden, I worked as a postdoc and lecturer at the Law and Governance Group, Wageningen University (2009-2013). In 2014, I was a visiting fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, the University of Edinburgh.
