Greg Distelhorst is the Mitsubishi Career Development Professor and an Assistant Professor in Global Economics and Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management.
His research explores the social impact of multinational business, focusing on how multinationals engage with labor-intensive manufacturers in the developing world. He examines initiatives to regulate labor standards in the supply chains of firms like Nike and HP. This research sits at the intersection of multinational management, industrial relations, and political economy.
Distelhorst also studies Chinese politics and public policy, focusing on China’s institutions of government responsiveness and accountability. He examines how citizens exploit these institutions and what prompts unelected officials to respond to citizen demands.
His research has been published in Management Science, Regulation & Governance, Comparative Political Studies, and the Quarterly Journal of Political Science.
