Aseem Prakash is interested in issues of governance: how do governance institutions emerge, how they function, and how they impact outcomes. Much of his research focuses on non-governmental institutions in the environmental policy area, and how business-government-NGO dynamics influence their adoption, functioning and efficacy. Professor Prakash is the author of Greening the Firm (2000, Cambridge University Press), the co-author of The Voluntary Environmentalists (2006, Cambridge University Press), and the co-editor of Globalization and Governance (1999, Routledge), Coping with Globalization (2000, Routledge) and Responding to Globalization (2000, Routledge). He has published over two dozen articles in journals including American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, World Politics, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Policy Analysis & Management, Public Administration Review, Review of International Studies, Review of International Political Economy, Business & Society, and Business Strategy and the Environment.
