My research, based on my fieldwork in South Sudan and Poland, is concerned with the study of the developmentalists movements, with a special emphasis on the so-called “emerging donors”. I am specifically interested in the role of individual motivations and personal call for development practice. How do private passions, world visions, and sentiments render and translate into the institutionalized and organized world of the international aid system? What drives people and their organizations to work outside their familiar home setting for distant Others?
