Professor in Sustainability
I have a long standing interest in corporations’ role in society and it therefore felt natural to join ICCSR in 2013. My main research interest is investigating how organizations take part in negotiating and shaping how we, as individuals, organizations, and societies, respond to global or societal phenomena. I am pursuing this research interest on projects relating to how corporations respond to climate change, corporate political activities in influencing public policy, and adaptations of sickness absence policies.
The empirical projects are based on public documents and interviews mainly using a discursive analytical approach. Central to my diverse range of research interests is displaying power relations within and between organisations, and engendering moral or ethical business practices.
