Research overview

His research focuses on spatial political economies and ecologies of organisation and management, splitting into the following four interrelated areas.

  • International business and employment relations: Exploring the working life conditions, self-reproduction problems and survival strategies of the unorganised, temporary, migrant and disadvantaged segments of the labouring classes.
  • Economic geography and the political economy of systemic crises: Developing an interdisciplinary economic geography approach to critically examining the interlinked processes of crisis-production and crisis-displacement at local, regional, national and international scales.
  • Sustainability, climate policy and carbon markets: Analysing the actors, dynamics and processes of sustainable development, climate change mitigation and its socio-economic, geopolitical and environmental consequences.
  • Emerging economies and social movements: Examining the contestations and confrontations within and between businesses, governments, labour and grassroots social movements in the context of emerging economies.

Aiming at the wider public, Dr Agar also publishes short articles in various media outlets, including The Conversation, The Canary, The Wire,, EconoTimes, Bianet and Gaia.
