Dr Juvaria Jafri


I am a pluralist economist interested in the role of finance in development. I joined the Centre for Strategic Philanthropy at the Judge Business School in 2021 where I am currently studying philanthropic behaviours and choices. My published work includes a co-edited book, book chapters, and refereed articles in political economy, politics, and financial geography journals. I have also taught on undergraduate and postgraduate modules in economics, finance, and development. My previous appointments include a Lectureship in International Political Economy at City, University of London, which is also where I completed my doctorate on inclusive finance and shadow banking. Over the Winter/ Spring of 2020-21 I was the Wangari Maathai Visiting Professor at the Global Partnership Network at the University of Kassel in Germany. My previous degrees are from the University of Toronto, in Canada, and the Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology in Karachi, Pakistan.
