An ongoing theme throughout her work is the application of ‘critical’ approaches, both methodological and theoretical – with a particular interest in inequalities related to gender and to ‘North-South’ relations.
Donna’s doctoral thesis focuses on political support for international development, analysing influences of particular interest groups in the context of UK development policy.
