Presentation

My research focuses on sustainable value chains, industrial clusters, and corporate social responsibility with a regional focus on South Asia. I have undertaken a number of in-depth studies on these themes in the football manufacturing, leather tanning, garment and textile industries in South Asia. Most recently, I have researched the formulation, implementation and socio-economic and environmental impacts of the Better Cotton Initiative – a multi-stakeholder initiative - in Pakistan and India. I have also a broader interest in the role of the private sector in development and the field of business and development studies as an academic and policy-oriented discipline. At present, I am involved in a three-year in- depth-study of women’s entrepreneurship in the bamboo value chains of India in the states of Assam, Odisha, Meghalya, and Madhya Pradesh.

I have published more than 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals such as Business and Society, Global Networks, Geoforum, Journal of Business Ethics, Development and Change, and Journal of Economic Geography. I am also co-editor of the forthcoming Routledge anthology, “Business and Development Studies: Issues and Perspectives” (together w. Hansen and Lindgreen). Currently, I serve as Associate Editor at the journal Competition and Change (Sage Publications).

Primary research areas
  • CSER in Developing Countries
  • Industrial Upgrading & MSMEs
  • Ethical and Fair Trade
  • Global Value Chains and Clusters
  • Industry focus: football, garments, textiles, and leather.
