Naam B Hulshoff MA



I was trained as a social and economic historian at Leiden University, where I completed both my BA (cum laude) and ResMA (cum laude). During my ResMA I mainly focused on political economy, economic development and social change in East and Southeast Asia, and wrote my thesis on the development of the capitalist system in China. After graduation I decided to pursue a BA (summa cum laude) in philosophy at the KU Leuven, where I specialized in political philosophy, writing a thesis on the ethics of corporate lobby from a democratic perspective.  


I am currently working at the Economic and Environmental History Group as a PhD candidate, doing comparative historical research on the political economy of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa under the guidance of Ewout Frankema, Pim de Zwart and Sandra de Pleijt. My research is part of the project 'South-South Divergence. Comparative Histories of Regional Integration in Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa since 1850'.
