Jean-Pascal Gond is a Professor of Corporate Social Responsibility at Cass Business School, City University London. Before coming to Cass in 2012 he held various academic positions at HEC Montréal (University of Montréal, Canada) and at the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility at Nottingham University Business School. He earned his PhD in Management Sciences from the University of Toulouse I (France), graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Cachan (1996), and was a recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship (2008). His research mobilizes organization theory and economic sociology to investigate corporate social responsibility (CSR). Key research programmes currently in progress on CSR include the roles of standards and metrics in the institutionalization of CSR in the financial marketplace and in corporations, the influence of CSR on employees, and the variations of CSR across varieties of capitalism. His research in economic sociology is concerned with the influence of theory on managerial practice, the governance of self-regulation, and the interplay of society’s commodification and markets’ socialization.
He has published in the fields of corporate responsibility and organization theory in leading academic journals such as Business Ethics Quarterly, Business and Society, Economy and Society, Human Relations, Organization Science, Organization Studies, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Management Studies.
