Dr. Antonio Jimenez-Luque’s work, broadly speaking, explores how cultural, social, and historical perspectives influence conceptualizations and practice of leadership understood as a relational process of mobilization, emancipation, and social change. At the intersection of critical theory and intercultural studies, his research topics are (1) organizational culture and change; (2) leadership and framing for sense/meaning-making; and (3) critical interculturality and global social justice.

From 2004-2013, Dr. Jimenez-Luque was the Coordinator for the International Cooperation for Development at the University of Barcelona Solidarity Foundation. He designed and implemented projects on topics related with human development, peace-building, human rights, and critical interculturality with local governments, universities, grassroot organizations, and social movements in Algeria, DR Congo, Vietnam, Colombia, and Bolivia, among other countries. In 2014, Dr. Jimenez-Luque moved to United States where he worked at Gonzaga University for the Associate Vice-President for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion as Intercultural Research Associate, and taught a variety of classes including Leading Across Cultures, Democracy and Human Rights, and Latin American Politics.
