Research areas

Research
My current research combines the broad fields of organisation theory and strategy with the narrow field of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). I am particularly interested in the inner workings of CSR within firms and in the results that follow from investing in CSR. Answers to these questions are very elusive, but I am currently developing a research project to examine the Contingencies, Choices and Outcomes involved in CSR projects. The empirical focus for this project is the global mining industry, where CSR is widely seen as an indispensable instrument in securing broad support from stakeholders.

Over the years I have written my fair share of endlessly boring research papers, as one must. A few are possibly worth looking at. The publication list covers them all.
