Mark Hibben’s interests include globalization and development, international political economy, human rights, and the politics of poverty and inequality. His current research focuses on three areas: (1)the politics of development in the current ‘post-Washington Consensus’ period, with a specific focus on explaining why and how discourses of inequality and Keynesian inspired themes shape International Monetary Fund and World Bank policy choices; (2) IMF and World Bank collaboration and its impact on development outcomes; and (3) Assessment of the China’s growing power on global development outcomes. Outside of work, Professor Hibben is an avid fan of ultimate Frisbee, coffee consumption, and the Boston Red Sox.
