Fields of interest
My research centres on the political economy of human rights, particularly in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. I am interested in the role of human rights in social and political processes that aim at securing basic needs, or put it differently, how human rights norms and discourses are put into work and what are the impacts thereof. So far I have been focusing on the translation and the institutionalisation of human rights, economic, social and cultural rights, and the right to food. My most recent research examines the negotiation of human rights in the context of agricultural modernisation in Merauke, Papua, Indonesia.
