Marie-Laure Salles-Djelic PhD Harvard 1996, Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Stockholm, is Professor at Sciences Po (CSO) since September 2016. She was previously Professor and Director of the Centre of Research on Capitalism, Globalisation and Governance at ESSEC Business School. She also held various administrative and managerial positions at ESSEC - Dean of Professors (2003-2007), Director of the Management Department (2008-2012), Associate Dean in charge of the PhD (2012-2015).

Marie-Laure Salles-Djelic’s research focuses on the interface between business and society. In the continuity of a sociological tradition inspired by Weberian institutionalism, economic activity cannot be understood in isolation from the institutional arrangements in which it operates. These arrangements, furthermore, are not universal, but anchored and variable in time and space. She has worked on the contemporary transformations of capitalism, the international dissemination of ideas and practices, the role of professions and transnational communities in that context, the dynamics of regulation and governance in a globalised economic environment, the social responsibility of firms and the varied forms in which companies have become significant political actors. Her work is published in top international journals and in books from the best Academic Presses. For example, she is the author of Exporting the American Model (Oxford University Press 1998), which obtained the 2000 Max Weber Award for the Best Book in Organizational Sociology from the American Sociological Association. She has edited, together with Kerstin Sahlin-Andersson, Transnational Governance (Cambridge University Press 2006) and together with Sigrid Quack,Transnational Communities: Shaping Global Governance(Cambridge University Press 2010).

Marie-Laure Djelic was Guest Professor at the University of Stanford, the University of Uppsala, the University of Stockholm and the Stockholm School of Economics in Sweden, at the Bocconi University in Italy and at the Institute of Higher International Studies and Development in Geneva, Switzerland. She also sits on many scientific councils or university evaluation boards in many countries in Europe and North America.
