Organisation, Markets and Policy Research Group

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

Based in the Hertfordshire Business School, Organisations, Markets and Policy Research Group (OMP-RG) is convened by Professor Hulya Dagdeviren.

The group conducts research on:

  • firms, corporations and other business organisations
  • financial institutions and financial markets
  • labour and product markets
  • public services and utilities

Researchers in Organisations, Markets and Policy are inspired by pluralist/heterodox perspectives in Business Studies (including Economics, Finance and Management), especially critical political economy and institutional economics.

Interests in the group focus on the fundamental entities of business studies in the global economy. Some of our work is theoretical, others is applied and has policy oriented focus. We employ and advocate interdisciplinary approaches in both areas.

Our research covers a range of sectors and institutions in different geographies, including the UK, Europe, Asia and sub Saharan Africa. The scholars in this group have expertise and interest in the following areas:

  • The socio-economic outcomes of the conduct of business organisations and markets, including various forms of economic inequality, unemployment and social/public provision
  • Critical perspectives on finance and accounting, including studies of financial cooperatives, financialisation, performance convergence, and governance and accountability
  • The nature, evolution and governance of business organisations, extending into the structure and governance of firms, corporations and markets and their implications in terms of the performance at various levels.
