Her new research project will focus on the causes and consequences of the rise of market-based approaches to pro-poor healthcare (such as advanced market commitments, health enterprises, and primary care franchises), as led by public and nonprofit actors including the Center for Health Market Innovations, the Gates Foundation, HANSHEP, and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization.

Katherine Gibson (Western Sydney University)

Katherine Gibson

Katherine Gibson is internationally known for her research on rethinking economies as sites of ethical action. She trained as a human geographer with expertise in political economy and, with her collaborator for over 30 years, the late Professor Julie Graham, developed a distinctive approach to economic geography drawing on feminism, post-structuralism and action research. The diverse economies research program they initiated has become a vibrant sub-field of study within the social sciences. Katherine Gibson has directed action research projects with communities interested in alternative economic development pathways in Australia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and the Philippines. These experiences have contributed to elaboration of a distinctive 'Community Partnering Approach to Local Development'. The Community Economies Collective, which Gibson-Graham established, is an ongoing collaboration between academic and community researchers and activists in Australia, North America, Europe and South East Asia. The goal of the Collective is to theorise, discuss, represent and ultimately enact new visions of economy.
