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 qualitative research 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. In Lille, I am a member of ICOR, the IÉSEG Centre for Organizational Responsibility and of LEM-CNRS (9221).
