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.
