Sherry Marcellin

Sherry Marcellin is a doctoral candidate in the department of Politics and International Studies and is supervised by Professor Richard Higgott and Dr. Dwijen Rangnakar. She holds a Warwick Postgraduate Research Fellowship and an Overseas Research Student Award, and her thesis concerns the political economy of the globalisation of pharmaceutical patents. In particular she focuses on the universalised liberal prescription of global integrative economics and the extent to which the ongoing redefinition of this, more or less, settled growth strategy delivers on its promises of development of the entire global community, primarily the most vulnerable. Questions abound as to the reconfiguration of power structures in the making and unmaking of a global trade regime; the contemporary nature of governance in the global political economy, in particular intellectual property governance; and the implications for all of humanity.
