Priya Lukka


Priya Lukka is an economist in international development committed to looking at the neocolonial reasons that poverty still exists in a world abundant with resources. She has worked with government policymakers, civil society organisations, social movements and international development agencies throughout the world, from a position as funder, policy advocate, advisor, programme manager and co-developer of knowledge including the UN, The Wellcome Trust and DfID. At her heart, Priya loves approaches that cause disruption in order to allow the power of the elite to be dismantled so that historically marginalised people can reclaim their rights.

Priya is also a Visiting Research Fellow at Goldsmiths University.
