Kathryn is the Director of ODI’s Politics and Governance programme. She has been a widely acknowledged expert on conflict, fragility and governance as well as the role of business in fragile situations for 25 years, and has written extensively in these fields. A common thread of her thinking has been the importance of bringing a shrewd political lens to the development endeavour and ensuring that ‘developing country’ contexts are understood and engaged with as ‘complex’ political societies like any other.
