Paper “Playing on Two Chessboards: Reputation Effects between Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Political Activity (CPA)” recently received the Best Paper Award 2014 of the Journal of Management Studies and the Best Published Paper Award 2014 from the International Association of Business and Society.

2015 Academy of Management Conference in Vancouver, a paper co-authored by Christopher Wickert and myself was runner-up for the best paper award of the Social Issues in Management Division.

A Special Issue of the Journal of Business Ethics on “Organizing Corporate Social Responsibility” appeared in August 2013.

I am a professor of corporate social responsibility at the Department of Management at IÉSEG School of Management in Lille, France. I teach courses on CSR, business ethics and methodology and in my research I am interested in business and society interactions, especially in how activist groups operate vis-a-vis firms, what strategies and tactics they use over time to evoke institutional change on issues of corporate social responsibility and in how firms respond to these challenges.

This homepage contains links to my research and teaching activities, a short CV and a few links I find useful or interesting. Please contact me if you have any further questions or remarks.
