I am an organization studies scholar with a strong CMS twist. My work intersects social theory, organization studies, political science, communications and  history. In summary: Since I earned my PhD (2004), the work of Foucault has been a dominant influence in my work and the themes of control and politics are central also in my empirical studies. My recent work has concentrated on the adoption, diffusion and glocalisation of ideas and ideologies.
