José Carlos Marques' research program lies at the intersection of strategic management and sustainability governance. He studies the design and management of inter-organizational collaborations that address social and environmental challenges - these include business associations, multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) and public-private partnerships (PPPs). He is particularly interested in the drivers, strategies and effectiveness of coalitions that develop global CSR standards, sustainability certifications and industry codes of conduct.
His current project examines the contestation, cooperation and competition between firms, non-government organizations (NGOs) and governments which shaped the private regulatory governance regime in the apparel industry's global supply chain. He also has active research projects on sustainability alliances in the global electronics industry and public-private regulatory interactions in the Canadian mining industry.
José Carlos' work has been published and is forthcoming in MIT Sloan Management Review (with Henry Mintzberg) and Journal of Business Ethics. His co-edited volume, Corporate Social Responsibility and Regulatory Governance: Towards Inclusive Development? (with Peter Utting) has recently been re-issued as a Palgrave Macmillan International Political Economy Classic.
Prior to pursuing a PhD, he was a researcher at the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD). He has also held several management positions at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as well as in the IT industry and NGO sector.
