Carl Rhodes is Professor of Organisation Studies at the University of Technology Sydney.
Carl’s research investigates the ethical and political environments in which contemporary organisations operate and their effects on their behaviour. The central focus is on how organisations, especially corporations, can and should be held to account for their actions by citizens and by civil society. This work endeavours to contribute to the rigorous and critical questioning and reformulation of the purpose of work organisations in the context of democracy.
Carl’s most recent books are ‘Disturbing Business Ethics’ (Routledge, 2019) and ‘CEO Society: The Corporate Takeover of Everyday Life’ (Zed, 2018 with Peter Bloom). His new book, ‘Woke Capitalism: Democracy Under Threat in the Age of Corporate Righteousness’ (Policy Press), will be published in 2021.
