Research Interests:
Research interests include: sexual labour and transactional sex; human trafficking and international migration; Caribbean sexuality; race and ethnic relations; transnational feminist theory and methodologies; gender and development.

Starting with research on sex work in the Dutch Caribbean, Kempadoo’s research has broadened to include global issues of “the traffic of women” and sexual economic transactional relations that exist outside of the sex industry. She has conducted policy–oriented research on Caribbean sexual relations and HIV for UN and intergovernmental agencies, and recently held a SSHRC-Research Development Initiative grant to examine the issue of incest in the Caribbean. Much of her research is collaborative. A new focus in her work is on research methodologies in Caribbean feminism and sex work studies.

Teaching:
Kempadoo teaches courses in Caribbean studies, ‘Third World’ and transnational feminisms, sex work studies, Black Studies, and critical perspectives in gender and development.  Her publications include Global Sex Workers (Routledge 1998); Sun, Sex and Gold: Tourism and Sex Work in the Caribbean (Rowman and Littlefield 1999); Sexing the Caribbean (Routledge 2004) and Trafficking and Prostitution Reconsidered (Paradigm 2005).  She is also series editor of Transnational Feminist Studies with Paradigm Publishers.

Research Interests:
Areas of Academic Interest

  • Theories of society, politics and the city;
  • Comparative urban-regional politics and planning;
  • Urban social movements and restructuring;
  • Colonization, racialization and urbanization in post–colonial times;
  • Suburbanization, territorial relations and regional planning;
  • Public housing: gentrification, privatization and redevelopment.

My empirical research has focused on urban–regional politics and planning in transnational and comparative context. In second–tier global cities in North America and Europe (Zurich, Toronto and Paris), I have researched the role of urban social movements and local–regional politics and planning in processes of transnational urban restructuring since the late 1960s. My research on Toronto has been particularly interested in the impasse of regional planning and the formation of a 'competitive city' planning regime characterized by neoliberalism, revanchism and cultural–differential aspects of 'diversity management' (including multiculturalism). More recently, I have been working on place–based policies of mixity/diversity and the redevelopment of public housing, with a focus on Toronto and Paris.

Publications/Projects:
My book Creating European Citizens and related work explains the development and implications of supranational rights culminating in EU citizenship. As Jean Monnet Chair and Director of the EU Centre of Excellence, I’m involved in a range of EU–related projects and follow politics in many European states (before coming to York, I taught European studies for three years at NYU). I also study the comparative politics of citizenship, nationality, and migration (I’m co–founder of APSA's new Migration and Citizenship section) and have forthcoming works on Multilevel Citizenship (edited book), Free Movement and Discrimination (journal special issue), and citizenship and integration in the Netherlands. I’d be happy to supervise or advise graduate research in any related areas. Further, I’m interested in Canadian politics (I served as Parliamentary Intern with a brief stint in the Privy Council Office, have a one–year politics degree from Université Laval, and wrote an honours thesis at UBC on Québec nationalism) and could advise graduate work on general Canadian and/or Québec politics, parliament, federalism, or related areas.
