Research

My doctorate thesis explores the function of ceremonial adoption, which occurs during a cross-national transfer of organisational practices within a multinational organisation. More specifically, the thesis aims to explain how the ceremonial adoption serves as a safeguard for the overseas office members of a Japan's international development organisation when its headquarters in Tokyo transplants their practices to their offices in developing countries.
