  Anselm holds a Master’s degree in economics (Freie Universität Berlin, 2006) and a PhD in business administration (University of Zurich, 2014). Before joining Stockholm Business School, Anselm was a researcher in the area of corporate sustainability at the University of Zurich and a doctoral fellow at the Swiss National Centre of Excellence in Research (trade regulation).
Anselm’s research interests lie in the interface of organization theory, corporate social responsibility, sustainable development, and global governance. In today’s globalized economy, business firms are confronted with a variety of novel challenges. These comprise human rights violations in global supply chains, environmental problems caused by business activities, the provision of public goods by business, and the involvement of business in processes of rule making that leads to an increasingly political role of business firms. Central to Anselm’s research are the implications of these developments for organizational structures and processes.

His work appeared in journals such as Business and Society, Journal of Business Ethics, and Business Strategy and the Environment, as well as in several edited volumes.
