Organisation, Ethics and Society

oes

Overview

We are a diverse group of researchers who employ social theory to better understand the various ways in which organizing takes place in its social, ethical and political dimensions. This includes critical perspectives on a wide variety of management and workplace issues. We utilise predominantly qualitative methods in order to explore the complexity and richness of how organization is created and performed and its effects on its participants.  These methods include interviews, story-telling, ethnography and other forms of narrative analysis.

Specific topics of interest are:

  • Organizing in social movements, civil society and other alternative forms of organization.
  • Corporate social responsibility and sustainability.
  • Institutional change and development in Eastern Europe.
  • The ethics and politics of management and organization.
  • Democracy in organizations.
  • Power, privilege and exploitation in the workplace.
  • Equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Work and human relations: the role of ethnicity, culture, migration, family and intergenerational relations. 
  • Gender and sexuality in organizations.
  • Labour process theory, employment relations and trade unions.
  • Public sector organization and governance.
  • Critical management studies.
