About

Giovanna Michelon joined the University of Exeter Business School in May 2013. She was formerly an Assistant Professor at the University of Padova (Italy), at the Department of Economics and Management. Giovanna graduated with a PhD from the University of Padova, and has worked as a visiting scholar at the University of Birmingham (Birmingham, UK), Concordia University (Montreal, Canada) and University of Central Florida (Orlando, USA). Giovanna’s work mainly relates to corporate social responsibility and governance and it has been published in academic journals such as the Journal of Business Ethics, Accounting and Business Research, Accounting Auditing and Accountability Journal and Critical Perspective on Accounting. Her research focus is at the interface between corporate governance and social responsibility; broadly this involves: building upon a stakeholder-oriented approach to governance; investigating how governance (board and CEO’s characteristics) shapes firms’ social responsible activities and reporting practices; understanding the business case for CSR and exploring the role of CSR information for market participants and other stakeholders. She has recently been looking at the effects and implications of shareholders’ demands for CSR.
