1. Globalization and economic reform in the post-Cold War. The case of People’s Republic of China and Argentina Republic 1989-2001.
2. The long crisis of an idea. Models for development in Argentina between 1955 and 1976
3. Religion and social development in China
4. War veterans and development (Past project).
