I examine the interplay between globalisation, business, and human rights and labour standards, using panel data and network analysis. I am interested in factors that influence human rights protection in the developing world, and in particular, how multinational corporations and their foreign direct investment (FDI) come into play.
I play a leading role in a number of initiatives to promote research transparency. I’m a member of the Steering Committee of the UK Reproducitibility Network and the Executive Committee of Project TIER, as well as serving on the Advisory Board of the Qualitative Data Repository. I write about reproducibility on my blog and tweet at @polscireplicate.
I also work on a British-Academy-funded project to foster data transparency in government administration and universities. Together with Prof Dalson Figueiredo, Federal University of Pernambuco, I conducted a novel study on corruption in Brazil and organised transparency workshops for researchers and civil servants. More info about this project is here. A journal article is in preparation.
