The need for interdisciplinary social science methods has long been identified in One Health research. Its application however, is it yet to be fully operationalised. The project aims to train researchers investigating infectious disease and AMR by equipping them with tools, theory and methods from political economy and heterodox economics disciplines of social sciences in order to critically examine social, economic, cultural and political relations that govern human behaviours and policymaking in low and middle income countries.
