My research and scholarly activities center on the complex relationship between international trade and economic development. In particular, I was always interested in how developing countries position themselves within the shifting realities of international economic relations. My first book took a macro approach and scrutinized the WTO with its most prominent trade agreements in the context of economic development. The second book took a micro-level approach. It explored the human-centered approach to development in view of the fact that individual agency is influenced by a number of factors embedded in the political, social, cultural, and economic norms, domestic institutions, and existing power structures of international economy. Currently, I am working on my third book. The book will study the connection between a set of institutional reforms and legislative measures impacting operations of corporations and a country's long-term sustainable development.
