Eduardo Canel

Associate Professor, Department of Social Science, York University

Professor Canel's research focuses on the role that social movements, community organizations and NGOs play in shaping or resisting development agendas through contentious strategies and/or through partnerships with institutional actors. He is currently working on the growth of socio-environmental conflicts arising from the intensification of resource extraction promoted by the new development agendas of leftist governments in Latin America (neo-developmentalism and new extractivism).
