Projects per year
My research explores new ways of thinking about and practicing responsible business. I am particularly known for my work on the changing political roles and responsibilities of corporations in the global economy. Currently, my research is focused on the business of modern slavery, corporate activism, and CSR communications.
A range of different funders have supported my research, including the British Academy, the UK Department for International Development, Innovate UK, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the UK Economic and Social Sciences Research Council, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
