Kathryn is the Director of ODI’s Politics and Governance programme which brings a political economy, human rights and justice lens to the governance of digital spaces. She is a widely acknowledged expert on conflict, fragility and governance as well as the role of business in fragile situations for 25 years, about which she has written extensively. A common thread of her thinking has been the importance of comparative approaches and the need to bring a critical, shrewd political lens to the study of development practice and ‘developing country’ contexts ‘complex’ political societies and systems like any other.
