Research summary: My research examines sustainable and community development policies as they have been implemented in a predominantly Romani neighborhood in Budapest, Hungary. I explore the ways that narratives of 'sustainability,' 'community,' and 'good governance' perpetuate and exacerbate existing racial inequalities. This research aims to demonstrate the complex ways in which transnational policy initiatives interact with local spaces and histories, as well as investigate race as a global structure of inequality.
