Our research focus is responsible management. Our aim is to contribute new knowledge in ways that improve understanding of responsible management as a concept and as practice. Our empirical research takes place in multiple contexts. We aim to influence the contribution that leaders, managers, and organisations make to global challenges, such as those described in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals post-2015.
Every management judgement and every management action taken in the institutions of business, enterprise, public organisations, NGOs, and markets can have local and global effects on all people’s lives. The reflexive anticipation of such effects can enhance leadership, management, and public policy; lead to responsible innovation, create value, and improve lives
Our work extends beyond the boundaries of Corporate Social Responsibility. Our multi-disciplinary research teams grapple with exploring the possibility of anticipating consequences in a responsible way. We examine critically the complexities of inter-relations between stakeholders; developing theoretical insights and frameworks to see reality differently, to improve practice and to explore alternative futures. Our combined areas include ethical behaviour, critical management, governance, human rights, responsible innovation, socio-economic challenges to economic development, humanitarian services, and futures research.
