Research areas

The Institute for International Management is actively engaged in international research projects concerning the globalisation of economic activity and the implications for patterns of work and governance.

Globalising actors/activists in multinational companies

The Institute is currently involved in a major ongoing ESRC funded project investigating globalising actors, namely those who create, disseminate and implement new global norms in multinational companies.

Law, corporate governance and development

This research area focuses on the role of macro-level factors in shaping globalisation, specifically how governments and international organisations, through their reform programmes, shape the convergence process of corporate governance practices.

The internationalisation of firms from emerging economies

A third area of study of the Institute is the rapidly growing outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) from emerging economies. This research area seeks to understand the institutional determinants and consequences of OFDI from emerging markets.

Comparative political economy of work

A fourth research area within the Institute focuses on the comparative and historical analysis of work and employment relations within Europe and North America.

This includes investigating models of global best practice for work organisation and labour management, such as lean production and business process re-engineering.
