Much of his work is comparative and interdisciplinary. His field research from Trinidad to Australia to Norway has focused on several ethnically and culturally complex societies. His work has tackled themes such as ethnicity and the dynamics of culture and identity, cosmopolitism, human rights, globalisation and its implications for the study of culture and society. He is currently working on the contradictions between economic growth and environmental sustainability.
