My research addresses two interdependent issues in sociology: the production, nature, and application of state power; the meaning, processes, and practices of international development. To date I have used one particularly pervasive approach to development - i.e., community-based development - as a lens to understand not only how the supposed division between state and society is produced but also why the idea or effect of the state has a significant political reality.
