Research deals with the political and social consequences of development in terms of democracy and its prospects. These concerns have been examined in a context of theories derived from case studies and comparative analysis, with field work in Africa, Latin America, Japan, and China. Current interests include political discourse theory in relation to political movements and violent protest.
