Dr. Hughes works at the Crawford School of Public Policy, where his research focuses on the national and international governance in natural resource markets, and the energy sector and climate change.
In 2014 Dr. Hughes’ book Globalizing Oil was published through the Business and Public Policy series with Cambridge University Press (reviewed here by John Mitchell in International Affairs).
His most recent project – in conjunction with the Harvard Kennedy School Asia Energy and Sustainability Initiative – examines how changes in the structure of global supply chains affect the ability of governments to promote green growth industries, beginning with photovoltaics and next-generation vehicles. For 2013-2014 this project was funded by the Social Science Research Council. Earlier work was sponsored by the East-West Center and Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University.
