Forschungsschwerpunkte

Ich interessiere mich für makro-organisationale Phänomene, wie u.a. Fragen des diskursiven Wandels und der Stabilität, der Pfadabhängigkeit sowie der Politik unternehmerischer Verantwortung. Im Rahmen meiner Dissertation habe ich mich aus historischer Perspektive mit den diskursiven Aushandlungen wirtschaftlicher, staatlicher und zivilgesellschaftlicher Akteure um Bedeutung und Motivation unternehmerischer Verantwortung beschäftigt. Meine aktuelle Forschung erweitert diese Interessen auf Fragen der Governance globaler Produktionsnetzwerke in der Bekleidungsindustrie – insbesondere im Hinblick auf Arbeitsstandards.
