Brooke Harrington wins Academy of Management Award for research impact!
This award, from the main professional society for scholars of organizations and management, recognizes outstanding international collaborations between academics and external stakeholders, such as firms, governments and NGOs. Projects must have achieved demonstrable, external impact to be nominated.
The judging panel describes Brooke Harrington’s work as outstanding on all characteristics, with a special commendation for international impact. She was nominated by a multi-national group of scholars and public officials—including representatives of the EU Parliament, the US Internal Revenue Service, and the OECD—for using her research to advise lawmakers on how best to prevent tax fraud and the abuse of offshore financial centers.

The book based on Harrington’s offshore research—Capital without Borders: Wealth Managers and the One Percent (2016, Harvard University Press)—also won the 2018 “Outstanding Book Award” from the American Sociological Association’s section on Inequality, Poverty and Mobility. An article based on this study has just been published in a leading organizations and management journal, Family Business Review.
