Kalim is an economist, specialising in Development Economics. He started as a research associate at the University of Bergen, Norway in 1989, while also working on his Ph.D. As a result, besides speaking several north Indian languages, Kalim is also fluent in Norwegian. Between 1991 and 1992, he has undertaken extensive research on the economic conditions of the peasantry in Uttar Pradesh state, India.
His writings are a combination of international and development economics, economic policy, economic history and political economy, which often challenge prevailing orthodoxy about which polices promote overall development in less developed countries.
Kalim was born in Uttar Pradesh, India. He took his MA in economics from Indias prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, lived and worked in Norway and moved to the UK in the summer 1996.
With his keen interest in global development issues, Kalim undertook a Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Bradford. Thereafter, he spent a number of years teaching at various universities; his work with diverse groups of academics and students re-enforced Kalim's belief in the need for a wider approach to development issues.
Kalim also examines Doctoral theses as an internal & external examiner. He also lectures at Higher Academic Institutions in India. He has presented conference papers at both national and international conferences in the UK, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, USA, Germany, Pakistan and India. He has also published extensively on economic and developmental policy issues.
Kalim opted for a career in teaching and took a PGCE (HE) qualification at the University of Bradford. Kalim has been working in higher education since 1989 and has gained a variety of experience, working with full-time and part-time students from different nationalities and cultural backgrounds at Universities in Norway and the UK. Kalim began his teaching career in 1989 at undergraduate levels and in the course of time he developed a range of economics modules and was active in curriculum development.
To strengthen his knowledge and skills in Ph.D. supervision tasks, Kalim completed the Post-Graduate Certificate in Professional Development in Research Supervision from the University of Huddersfield.
He has taught a number of Economics courses which explore different economic perspectives but his main interests lie in the area of the political economy of international development. Kalim has been in-charge of the BABM (Hons) business management programme full-time route at UCO from 2001 to 2009. Kalim has developed under-graduate and post-graduate courses in the UK and delivered modules in the UK, Norway and the Hong Kong.
His research focuses on the areas of International Political Economy, Globalisation, International Trade, Foreign Direct Investment, Macro-economic reforms, South-Asian, Emerging Market Economies and Economic Theories and Policies. On these topics Kalim has carried out research since 1985.
Kalims publications have ranged over a number of areas: International Political Economy; Development Economics; International Trade; Foreign Direct Investment; Globalisation; Agriculture; Economic Reforms in South Asian Countries on which he has published articles in a number of journals, books and newspapers.
Currently he is working on one paper entitled Globalization, Foreign Direct Investment and Industrial Restructuring in India targeted for publication in Journal of International Development and another on: Free-market and the policy impact on the economies of the developing countries, scheduled for publication in Development and Change.
His planned research interests are in the areas of: Globalization and Impact on Developing Countries Economies; State Policies and Poverty; Sustainable Development; Emerging Economies; and Economic Relations between EU and Pacific-Rim countries.
