During her undergraduate years Nicole was a member of the Amnesty International group at Free University of Berlin where she was responsible for organizing lectures and talks on human rights.
CSR and Human Rights in Developing Countries
Nicole’s research focuses on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and human rights. She is especially interested in the impact of CSR strategies of multinational companies on the protection of human rights in weak states. Her dissertation follows a mixed-methods approach. In a first step she analyzes the impact of FDI on human rights in developing countries (cross-sectional time series). In a second step she will examine mechanisms and causal links through a comparative case study.
