In addition, he is a co-founder and Editor in Chief of a newly launching peer-reviewed journal – the Democracies – with Amsterdam University Press.

His research is focused on contributing to reconceptualizing development, the state, and democracy by engaging with the ideas, experiences, and peoples who have traditionally been excluded from the canon(s). From a global, relational and decolonial perspective, his work explores the social, political, and economic theories, ideas, networks and plans for the future, which emerge in struggle and in the confrontation between peoples and injustice broadly defined.
