My research and teaching examine the intersection of corporate responsibility, politics, and strategic management in the governance of contested global issues. In particular, I discuss the role of (public)-private governance in the context of addressing global social and environmental problems. Much of my work is focussed on how non-state actors (e.g. businesses and non-governmental organisations) set voluntary standards to improve the enforcement of basic rights (e.g., human and labor rights). I have also done work on the relationship between the UN system and the private sector with a special focus on the United Nations Global Compact.

I have a passion for research that matters (we have too little of this) and students who care (I have met many)...
