About Felix Ampadu
I am a Ph.D. student in Sociocultural Anthropology and a Research Associate with the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology. I graduated in September 2016, from Aarhus University in Denmark with a Master’s degree in Anthropology of Education and Globalization, where I studied on a Danish state Scholarship and grant award. Prior to this recent academic endeavor, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Art Education from the University of Education, Winneba in Ghana where I originally came from.
Areas of Study
Mining Corporation | Livelihood sustainability & Environmental policies | Political Ecology | Economic Anthropology | Anthropology of Development & Globalization
M.A. Thesis: Empowerment in Practice in a Welfare State, A means to Citizenship: Ethnography of an Afro-Empowerment Organisation in Denmark.
My interest is in issues of development within Sub-Saharan Africa. More specifically, in the extractive industry with the nucleus on Multinational Mining Corporations and their responsibilities towards sustainable livelihoods in the communities they operate; by focusing on the idea of globalization through financing and technology, and the future of natural resource management and sustainability.
