Professor Jackson’s research examines how corporate governance is influenced by diverse organizational and institutional contexts. His research utilizes cross-national comparison to better understand the regulatory and other societal influences on the corporation, particularly using the cases of Germany, Japan, the UK and USA. His research aims to link disparate fields of scholarship, including institutional theory, organizational analysis, economic sociology, and comparative political economy. Particular empirical interests have been the relationship of corporate governance and human resource management, and issues around corporate social responsibility and labor standards. His current projects seek to apply methods of fuzzy set and qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) to understanding.
Gregory Jackson’s research has been published widely in leading business journals. A number of his projects on public policy have been sponsored by the Department of Trade and Industry (UK), the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (Japan), the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales, and the Hans-Boeckler Foundation. His research also is cited by The Economist, Financial Times, and BBC radio. He is an editor of British Journal of Industrial Relations and will serve as Chief Editor of Socio-Economic Review from 2012.
