Current state of research and teaching activities
Human welfare depends on socio-economic development of the society in which one lives. Recently, I have been interested in how to anlyze the process of development from a social,economic and human development with an environmental perspective. This vision leads me to delve deeper into the paradoxical necessity to understand the need of economic development that will underlie human development and environmental protection. I hope this interdisciplinary path will bring about the theoretical background for a globalized world with a human face where the marginalized will feel empowered.
