Dr Philip Roberts
Associate Lecturer



Phil Roberts began his education at the University of Nottingham, and completed his PhD in the Department of Political Economy at the University of Sydney. His PhD thesis examined the Landless Workers Movement of Brazil during the economic transition from neoliberalism to neodevelopmentalism. This project was based on ethnographic field research in the states of Rio Grande do Sul and Bahia, and Phil has subsequently undertaken qualitative field research in India and in Ghana.



Phil's main research and teaching interests are in heterodox political economy, especially with regards to development. His future research will focus on the political economy of global food production, particularly within the 'rising powers.' At York, he teaches the MA modules 'Theories and Policies of Development Governance', and 'The Politics of International Trade and Development', and co-teaches the undergraduate modules 'Rising Powers' and 'Introduction to International Politics.'
