Key activities relevant to PDD:

We undertake critical interdisciplinary research on five themes: resource politics; (rethinking) regionalization; human rights, human security and justice; innovation and knowledge; and democratization and public sphere. We have recently completed research on the political ecology of flooding and migration in Southeast Asia ( The research aimed to complicate simplistic readings of environmental change as a singular driver of migration, and thus sensitize flood hazard policy agendas to the complexities of migration. We currently collaborate with the Raoul Wallenberg Institute in a regional study on the relationship between disaster and people displacement through a human rights lens in the Asia Pacific.
