Kees Jansen works in the fields of political ecology, critical agrarian studies and international development. His current research focusses on social justice and risk perspectives. Current projects address the global governance of pesticides, the greening of the agrarian question (agro-ecology, food sovereignty, conventionalization of organic agriculture), and agricultural wage labour (in particular on plantations in Central America) and imaginations of work and the body. Theoretically he is interested in rethinking linkages between technology and social justice, and between political ecology and risk theories. He has been involved in many interdisciplinary collaborations in which he develops key insights of critical realist theory (one current project is on coffee and transformations of landscapes in Latin America). The most important area of research is Latin America, but he has also limited field experience in other regions of the world.
