Anne Vestergaard is Associate Professor at Center for Corporate Social Responsibility. Her research revolves around mainstream discourses of morality with a particular interest in how processes of institutional, technological and semiotic mediation contribute to them. This interest is currently pursued in two strands of research, one concerning humanitarian communication, the other concerning CSR communication. The research investigates tensions brought about by the fading division of labor between commercial and non-commercial organizations and examines how marketized practices are impacting on the identity, image and reputation of NGOs as well as how a moral economy is transforming discourses in and around corporations.
