Scott B. Martin (Ph.D., Columbia University) has taught regularly in the New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs program since 2005 as well as in the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University since 1998. He has held visiting appointments at Yale, Princeton, and Sarah Lawrence College, and currently is Visiting Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice. He regularly served as a freelance research contributor to Latin American reports of the Economist Intelligence Unit for over a decade. His areas of research and teaching specialization are comparative and transnational labor politics, comparative social policy, corporate social responsibility in transnational corporations, politics/policy of socio-economic development, and Latin American political economy. He is co-author of Labor Contestation at Walmart Brazil: Limits of Global Diffusion in Latin America (Palgrave, 2021), exploring the nationally contingent patterns of conflict and cooperation between unions and regulators on one hand and the U.S. supermarket giant, on the other (with João Paulo Veiga and Katiuscia Galhera). He co-edited and contributed to El Estado de Bienestar ante la Globalización: El Caso de Norteamérica (El Colegio de México, 2012, with Ilán Bizberg); Competitiveness and Development: Local Actors and Institutions (São Paulo, SENAC, 2001); and The New Politics of Inequality: Rethinking Participation and Representation (Oxford, 1997). Current research focusses on labor relations at Amazon warehouses in Brazil and Mexico, community-labor-environmental alliances surrounding Amazon facilities in New York City and New Jersey, and artificial intelligence regulation and governance in Latin America. He is co-editing a research volume entitled “Contesting the Contours of Global Amazon?” bringing together scholarship on that company’s social impact and employment relations from across four continents. His research has been supported by grants from Fulbright, Fulbright-Hays, a Faculty Fellowship from the Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies and (currently) the Faculty Research Fund at The New School, as well as the Centennial Center of the American Political Science Association.
