Personal profile


Kalim is an economist, specialising in Development Economics and International Economics. His work, which combines elements of international and development economics, economic policy, economic history and political economy, often challenges prevailing orthodoxy about which policies promote overall development in less developed countries.

Kalim was born in Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh State, India. He gained his MA in Economics from the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, where he was taught by Krishna Bharadwaj, Amit Bhaduri, Prabhat Patnaik, Sheila Bhalla, Utsa Patnaik and Shafiqe Naqvi among others. He started his academic career as a research associate at the University of Bergen, Norway in 1989, while also working on his Ph.D. As a result, besides speaking several North Indian languages, Kalim is also fluent in Norwegian. Between 1991 and 1992, he carried out extensive research on the economic conditions of the peasantry in Uttar Pradesh state, India. Due to his keen interest in global development issues, he undertook a Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Bradford. Kalim moved from Norway to the UK in 1996.
