Amir Lebdioui is the Canning House Research Fellow based at LACC. Canning House and LACC have partnered in the establishment of the Canning House Research Forum, a five-year rolling programme of research and policy engagement, consisting of project outputs as well as events.

His research lies at the crossroads between industrial policy, natural resource management and the sustainable development agenda. As a result, his research has focused on the political economy of resource-based development, export diversification strategies, and green industrial policy in the context of renewable energy development and climate change.
In addition to preparing a number of journal articles, Amir is also working on developing a new indicator of extractive-based development. He also regularly provides analysis for multilateral development organizations.
