Timothy Hildebrandt - About the Speaker

Timothy Hildebrandt joined the Department of Social Policy in August 2013 and is Associate Professor of Social Policy and Development. His teaching, primarily at the post-graduate level, focuses on social policy and development, non-governmental organisations, and sexuality.

Trained as a political scientist, Timothy’s current research program aims to better understand how social policies affect marginalised populations (such as LGBT people) and how social actors (such as NGOs) seek to rectify inequalities in policy processes and outcomes. Although internationally-recognised as a China expert, his recent research has been more comparative in nature, examining Southeast Asia, Subsaharan Africa, the UK, and the US. His research program is methodologically diverse, theoretically grounded, and empirically driven, motivated by and responsive to real world policy problems; he employs both qualitative and quantitative analysis in research that engages theories and debates in social policy, political science, communication, development, sexuality, and Asian studies. 

Timothy’s work has been published in a wide variety of journals including: Development and Change, Development Policy Review, Foreign Policy Analysis, Journal of Contemporary China, Review of International Studies, The China Quarterly. His book, Social Organizations and the Authoritarian State in China was published by Cambridge University Press in 2013. He also frequently adapts his research for a more general audience, with op-eds and commentaries appearing in Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, and South China Morning Post.
