  • Dr Ali Burak Guven -

    Ali Burak Güven joined Birkbeck in 2012. His work lies at the intersection of comparative and international political economy, focusing primarily on development policy and practice. Much of his recent research examines how an increasingly multipolar global economy impacts the parameters of development cooperation, with particular reference to international organisations such as the IMF and the World Bank. Policy and institutional trajectories in emerging countries constitute another substantive research interest. Ali has published in journals including Development and Change, Development Policy Review, Global Governance, International Affairs, New Political Economy, Review of International Political Economy, and Studies in Comparative International Development. He co-edited a collection on globalisation and has been working on a monograph on the evolution of agricultural and financial institutions of market governance in neoliberal Turkey. He was awarded the 2017 Ronald Tress Prize in Research Excellence in the Social Sciences category and held a British Academy research grant in 2017-18.
