We pride ourselves in the quality of our research. Much of it is published widely and we regularly contribute to distinguished management, social science, business and society and business ethics journals. 

The broad academic backgrounds of our staff span specialsims including business ethics, business and development, professionalism and CSR, markets and democracy, sustainable supply and value chains, and sustainable business. Our research informs best practice in business, government and civil society.
