Research and consultancy work focuses on ethical leadership and ethics management in public and private sector organisations.

Professor Karin Lasthuizen specialises in methodology for research into organisational unethical behaviours (OUB) such as corruption and fraud. She has written over 60 publications on leadership, ethics management, corruption and policing in national and international journals and books.

It is our ambition to develop theory, practical measurement instruments and evidence-based advice in the field of responsible leadership, ethics management and corruption measurement, which are sensitive to cultural subjectivity matters in this area and originate from comparative, cross-sectional and longitudinal research.

Potential PhD research areas

The Chair welcomes PhD students who would like to study ethical leadership, particularly from a specific cultural perspective, or in international business.
