Jacob Sims

Jacob Sims is a hybrid graduate student at Duke University and serves as Director of IJM Cambodia where he leads a team of investigators, lawyers, social workers, programmatic, and operational staff in the fight against labor exploitation. Jacob’s research looks at where and how well the assumptions of global humanitarianism align with the totalizing project of western late-modernity versus the radical project of the Church historic. Jacob previously directed international development policy research and taught courses at the College of William & Mary, led humanitarian programs in northern Myanmar, and co-founded a social justice organization in eastern Uganda.
