About Professor Setrini:
Gustavo Setrini is a political scientist who studies globalization, agriculture, and rural development. His research examines the opportunities and constraints that global markets offer for small farmers in poor countries, and his work aims to identify the institutional foundations of sustainable agriculture at the transnational and local levels. In 2008, Setrini won a Fulbright scholarship to study the effects of Fairtrade and organic certification on farmer organizations in Paraguay, where his research has also examined the effectiveness of donor-funded, NGO-led development projects to promote sustainable agricultural techniques and integrate small farmers into global supply chains. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011, and he served as a post-doctoral research associate at MIT’s Center for International Studies and Department of Urban Studies and Planning before joining Steinhardt.
