Swati Srivastava’s research focuses on International Relations, especially how hybrid public and private relations produce power in global politics. She has three ongoing research projects. One examines sovereign power in security contractors, business associations, and NGOs. Another investigates the English East India Company as a great power. Finally, her latest project explores global corporate power and political responsibility. Her research has been funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Buffett Institute for Global Studies.
