Louise’s research focuses on human rights, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability within multinational companies (MNCs). In particular, she explores how ethics, CSR and human rights are managed, implemented, measured and disclosed by MNCs as well as the drivers behind the extent and type of corporate responsibility. Whilst Louise’s research focuses on the people, governance systems and formal/informal management processes within businesses, she adopts a holistic approach that incorporates and explores the interaction of organisational and internal factors (such as employee values, leadership, and corporate culture), and environmental & external aspects (such as regulation, stakeholder pressure, and home/host country norms and traditions). Additionally, Louise has a keen interest in CSR and sustainability issues / governance at the international level particularly the work of the United Nations and initiatives in respect of CSR (e.g. Global Compact), business and human rights (e.g. UN Guiding Principles), corporate social performance (e.g. Principles for Responsible Investment, Global Reporting Initiative), and business ethics / CSR pedagogy (e.g. Principles for Responsible Management Education).
