T-bird’s Gamso Investigates Impact of China’s Elephant Ivory Ban

Professor explores shaming narrative and soft power related to ban in research published by Oxford University Press

Thunderbird is proud of new research by Dr. Jonas Gamso that looks at factors that led to China’s ban on imports and exports of elephant ivory and the impact – politically and economically – of those prohibitions. 

Jonas Gamso, China's ivory bans: enhancing soft power through wildlife conservation, International Affairs 2019, pp. 1-14,
Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of The Royal Institute of International Affairs.

Dr. Gamso is Assistant Professor of International Trade and Global Studies in the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University.

His primary research focus is on trade between developing countries, and the impacts of this sort of trade for sustainable development. He has also published peer-reviewed work on the relationship between foreign aid and migration.

Dr. Gamso’s work has appeared or is forthcoming at International Studies Quarterly, World Development, Latin American Perspectives, Journal of International Relations and Development, Journal of Environment & Development, Policy Sciences, and Environmental Policy and Governance.
