She has published extensively on these topics in Review of International Political Economy, Journal of International Economic Law, Globalizations, Journal of World Trade, World Trade Review, World Economy, Third World Quarterly, among others. She is co-editor of Expert Knowledge in Global Trade (Abingdon: Routledge, 2015), author of NGOs and Global Trade: Non-State Voices in EU Trade Policymaking (Abingdon: Routledge, 2016) and new editor of Global Political Economy, 7th Edition (Oxford: Oxford University Press, in press). She currently holds a SSHRC Insight Grant (with Silke Trommer and Adrienne Roberts at the University of Manchester) to examine gender mainstreaming in global trade governance and its implications for redressing inequality, exclusion, and disempowerment in the global economy. 

Dr. Hannah routinely advises governments and international organizations on developing equitable and inclusive trade policy and minimizing the adverse impacts of trade policy on equity-deserving groups including women, racialized people, LGBTQ2S+, Indigenous people, and those living with disabilities. She currently serves as an expert member of the World Trade Organization’s Gender Research Hub, Global Affairs Canada’s Gender and Trade Advisory Group and its Gender-Based Impact Assessment + Sub-Committee.
