Research interests

Jennifer's research examines Brazil’s influence on food and nutrition security (FNS) policy debates in the UK, exploring the role of different transnational actors in the travel and translation of these ideas from Brazil, and the ways in which State and non-State actors shape FNS policy agendas in the UK. She is particularly interested in the politics around the right to food, and the governance of food and nutrition security, at the national, devolved nation and local level. This links to her recent research on policy learning in development cooperation, exploring the South-South and South-North transfer/diffusion of policy learning, in particular from and with Brazil. Previous research interests include the political economy of the BRICS and other 'emerging' economies in international development and global aid architectures.
