Project Description

Carvalho Research Fellow

Anna Levy is a freelance researcher and analyst focused on structural inequality, political transitions, and transnational accountability politics. Her work over the last eight years has been focused on environmental and social movements, the political economy of the international aid industry, the suspension of rights in border and migration crises, decolonization and development, and the pursuit of civil and political rights in the context of enduring historical legacies of discrimination, often with a focus on how the digital age shapes and is shaped by each. Anna teaches two courses on development and humanitarian politics at Fordham University, and has worked on related research and analysis at Princeton, American, and New York Universities as well as in management and advisory roles in small grassroots coalitions and large transnational non-profits alike. The regions that most influence her thought, work, and direction are the Levantine Middle East, Central America, and the United States. She holds a Master’s degree from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs focused on political and economic transitions, oral history and historical memory.
