Sue Konzelmann

Sue Konzelmann is Reader in Management at Birkbeck, University of London, where she directs Birkbeck’s Postgraduate Programmes in Corporate Governance and Business Ethics. Sue is also Co-Executive Editor of the Cambridge Journal of Economics and a Research Associate in the Cambridge University Centre for Business Research. Sue’s research brings together historical, economic, social and political perspectives, to explore a range of different areas, most recently the political economics of austerity and the “variety” within liberal capitalism that became apparent in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. The current phase of this research considers the alternatives to austerity, including industrial strategy, social policy and financial reform, with the aim of informing theory and practice as well as policy. She is particularly interested in how the interaction of societal, economic and political forces shapes the direction of theory and policy – and how this, in turn, influences developments in global financial markets and the broader economic system in which they are embedded.
