Robin Thiers

Position: PhD FellowRobin Thiers w.png


Academic Interests:

My research interests lie at the crossroads of agrarian political economy, political ecology and (global) production network theory. For my PhD I study questions of agency in contract farming arrangements in the Southern Philippines' export banana sector. I am also interested in (1) the role of 'more-than-human' social interaction and (2) the applicability of agrarian political economy insights to other fields, such as artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). Keywords: agrarian political economy; political ecology; global production networks; agency; contract farming; Philippines; banana.
