Research interests

My primary research focusses on the impact of market-based advocacy strategies and the marketisation of research, advocacy and service delivery in the social justice sector, specifically relating to the ethics of contemporary development strategies and actors. I am currently undertaking sole-authored research on ethical consumption as a site for ‘advocacy’ in Australia. I am also interested in the increasing marketisation of social justice work – this includes the rise of corporate social responsibility and increasing ‘corporate creep’ in the not-for-profit sector. Additionally, through smaller collaborative projects, I am undertaking research on the ethics of internships in the social justice field, also by examining the design of internship programs as part of experiential learning pedagogy.
