ABOUT

Maureen Hickey's work as a social scientist is centered on intensive qualitative research and a focus on political-economic analysis in order to better understand the ways in which economic and social change is produced “on the ground” in the rapidly developing states of Southeast Asia.

Her dissertation research critically engages with ongoing debates in international political economy, globalization studies and neoliberalism through an examination of the restructuring of the taxi business and the deregulation of the taxi supply in Bangkok, Thailand. In addition, the dissertation includes an in-depth examination of the informal migration networks and changing labor practices of the rural Northeastern Thai men that make up the majority of Bangkok’s taxi drivers.
