Walden Bello is an international adjunct professor of sociology at the State University of New York at Binghamton and senior research fellow at the Center for Southeast Asian Studies of Kyoto University in Japan. In addition, he is a human rights and peace campaigner, environmentalist and journalist, and provides a critical perspective on what he calls 'corporate-driven globalization'. His recent work has been criticizing the financial subjugation of developing countries and promoting alternative models of development that would make countries less dependent on foreign capital. Bello received the Right Livelihood Award (also known as the Alternative Nobel Prize) in Stockholm in 2003 for his work showing the negative impact of what he calls 'corporate-driven globalization'. He was also named Outstanding Public Scholar by the International Studies Association in San Francisco in 2008. Walden Bello is a research associate at the Transnational Institute.
