Research Areas:   Big Tech companies, Political and Economic Global Power, International Diversity & Inclusion.

 

About my Study: The services provided by Tech giants platforms have an impact upon a broad array of human rights and public policy issues related to diversity and inclusion, privacy and data protection, access to information, freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of assembly and association, among others. By exploring the tension between MNC’s (Multinational Corporations) investment in internal diversity and inclusion initiatives, and their external problematic practices, I seek to advance understanding of how the relationship between machinations of power and discourses of democracy and pluralism, shape global political economies in ways that are grounded in social, discursive, and cultural arenas

 

My research is conducted under the guidance of Prof. Michal Frenkel.
