Dr Anita Hammer is a Senior Lecturer in Comparative and International HRM. Anita’s research focuses on the Global South, in particular India , and examines the development trajectories of new industrial regions, changing patterns of work and employment and the role of the informal economy. The research is interdisciplinary and draws on economic geography, sociology of work, and development. It contributes to key international academic and policy debates on regional development, industrial and social upgrading and the nature of capitalism.
Anita’s expertise is in regional development, informal economy, trade unions and workers’ movements and she would welcome PhD proposals in these aspects, especially from the Global South and Southern Europe. She is currently supervising 4 PhD students.
Anita is a member of the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) and Regional Studies Association (RSA). She is the module leader for Globalisation and International HRM modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Previously, she was a member of the Indian Civil Service.
