My work is interdisciplinary and draws primarily from political science and business in society scholarship. I define my field of research as government regulation of social welfare. I use the term social welfare to refer to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, but I also consider social welfare to mean employment and training opportunities with a particular focus on low-skilled workers.
