Welcome to Jennifer Manning who joins the Business, Society and Sustainability Research Centre as a PhD
student under the supervision of Dr. Paul Donnelly. The recipient of
a 2012 Fiosraigh Dean of Graduate Students Scholarship, Jennifer's
research --- titled ‘Alternative Trade and Sustainable Development:
Understanding Indigenous Women Fair Trade Co-operatives in Guatemala’ --- seeks
to investigate: 1) the process by which rural indigenous women producers in
developing economies create co-operatives; 2) how these co-operatives engage in
fair trade and operate in the global fair trade network; and 3) how sustainable
these co-operatives are in supporting the livelihoods of rural, indigenous
women. The project places emphasis on the role of organising as an emancipator
for indigenous women, thereby challenging the dominant neoliberal economic
paradigm and focusing on sustainability. The project proposes that
investigating how and why indigenous women form co-operatives will provide a
greater understanding regarding the ability of rural, indigenous women in
developing countries to form organisations, and thus aid in the long term
development of a socially and economically excluded indigenous community.
A former student of DIT, Jennifer graduated with first class honours in both her
BSc in Marketing (2002-06) and MSc in International Business (2006-07). Her
professional industry experience includes working in the charitable non-profit
sector and in academia as a project manager on an EU funded research project.
In addition, she spent two years travelling India, China, South-East Asia, the
South Pacific, Mexico and Central America, which included working in China as
an English teacher and volunteering in a fair trade organisation in Guatemala.
