In this position, you will conduct research on the project “The Influence of the Institutional Context on Corporate Philanthropy” that is part of a part-time PhD trajectory (0.6 FTE). Corporate philanthropy – investment of corporate resources such as employees’ time, money, network, technology and means – has become more of a norm than an exception in the current global marketplace to create positive social change. But we have little understanding of how these practices differ among various countries, regions and communities.
A good understanding of how the institutional context may shape corporate philanthropic behaviour and more specifically, how this context influences managerial decision-making, is lacking. So, together with you, we aim to develop a new research agenda guided by the central question: “How does the institutional context influence corporate philanthropy in Europe?”. The specifics of the research agenda will be determined by you and your supervisors. Yet to illustrate potential questions, here are some examples:
o Regulatory context: What is the influence of laws, rules, regulations and sanctions on decision-making in corporate philanthropy?
o Cultural cognitive context: What is the influence of common beliefs, convictions and shared logic on decision-making in corporate philanthropy?
o Normative context: How and to what extent do moral (or social) obligations help fostering and influencing decision-making in corporate philanthropy?
