David Greenwood-Sanchez

Credentials: Mexico

2017 SKJ Fellow

David Greenwood-Sanchez is a doctoral student in political science at UW-Madison. He studies biotechnology and civil society activism in Latin America, particularly the use of international law as a means of challenging the adoption and regulation of genetically modified crops. His project will explore the domestic factors that shape the success of this legal approach, using Peru and Mexico as case studies. With support of the SKJ fellowship, David will travel to southern Mexico — Oaxaca, Chiapas, Veracruz, and Puebla — to better understand regional advocacy efforts, and the ways in which farming communities think about genetically modified crops. David has a B.A. in economics from Whitman College, a M.P.P. from the University of Minnesota, and a M.A. in political science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
