Dr Christine Gilligan


I am in the Strategy and Change Management subject group and I focus my research and teaching on the area of responsible and sustainable business.  I am a member of the PRME group which is a group tasked with embedding the principles of responsible business in our teaching and learning.  I have also been involved with teaching and researching in the voluntary sector.
