What's new?

Our paper on CSR managers (with Christopher Wickert) was featured a.o. in French business paper Les Echos, a French CSR magazine and in Harvard Business Review.


In December 2018 the second 'Business & Society Paper Development Workshop' took place in Brussels; London, Paris and Barcelona will follow in 2019.


New paper accepted at Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental Management: Navigating tensions in a cross-sectoral social partnership: How a convener drives change for sustainability (with Iteke van Hille, Julie Ferguson and Peter Groenewegen). 

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