Barnaby Dye

DPhil Researcher

Department of Politics and International Relations

Barnaby’s research seeks to interrogate the resurgence of hydropower, asking why and how this is happening. It considers three representative cases of recent hydropower projects in Rwanda and Tanzania: the Nyabarongo, Rusumo and Stiegler’s Gorge hydropower projects. Through these cases, his thesis explores a range of financiers and builders in this phase of hydropower, including actors from India, the World Bank and Brazil respectively.
