Tom Chodor is a UQ Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Queensland. His research interests are in the areas of international political economy, international relations and globalisation. In particular, he is interested in the struggles over consent and hegemony within the neoliberal world order, and the transformative possibilities that emerge from such struggles. In his previous research project, he explored these themes in the Latin American context, in particular examining the 'Pink Tide' of leftist governments elected throughout the region since 1998, and their transformative and emancipatory potentials. In his new research project, he will be exploring these themes at the global level, with particular attention to the emerging powers from the Global South and their socialisation into the neoliberal world order.
