Overview

Heloise Weber’s main research interests are in the Global Politics of Development/Critical Development Studies and Global/International Political Economy (GPE/IPE), and relations of inequality. To these she brings a keen interest in the political histories and relations of colonialism, the politics of representation, decolonizing thought, and questions of regulation, power and resistance. These interests have informed her theoretical and methodological outlooks, and led her to engage with the politics of comparative method(s), meta-theoretical questions around relational analysis, and historical legacies in contemporary contradictions of development. Her publications have covered social and political analyses of development and poverty reduction strategies and their implications, critical evaluations of global governance frameworks, engagements with Human Security as an approach to development, and theoretical as well as methodological issues in IR/IPE and the Global Politics of Development.
