I co-convene a research project on Corporate Power in Global Society at the Harvard Law School’s Institute for Global Law and Policy. The project focuses on the growing role of multinational corporations in global governance and identifies the effects of expanding transnational economic activity on local policy-making authority. It does so through analysis of the role of law in the construction, operation and governance of global value chains and production networks. Our unique law and political economy approach is presented in an article entitled: “The Role of Law in Global Value Chains: a Research Manifesto“. This work reflects the legal dimensions of my research on the institutional environments in which business, government and society interact.
