Research Interests

Professor Hassard's main research interests lie in the areas of organisation theory and change. For the former, he is interested incritical and philosophical approaches to organisational analysis, notablycontributing to debates on paradigms, labour processes, time, actor networks and post-modernism. For the latter, his work relates to management and organizational development in the manufacturing firm. This work often takes an international dimension, as with studies of enterprise restructuring in the Chinese state-owned steel industry and management reform in Japan, U.K. and U.S.A. Professor Hassard has received a large amount of research funding in connection with these studies from, for example, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Department of Trade and Industry, the British Council, the Department of Health, and the United Nations. His research has resulted in the publication of fifteen books, over 60 articles in edited collections, and more than 90 articles in journals such as Industrial Relations, the British Journal of Industrial Relations, Organisation Studies, the Journal of Management Studies, and Human Relations. Professor Hassard holds an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Oulu, Finland, and serves on theeditorial boards of several academic journals.
