Dr Gale Raj-Reichert

Lecturer in Globalisation and Development

My research interests are on the governance of global production networks. More specifically, I have researched on how governance over health and safety in the computer global production network are implemented in Penang, Malaysia. I focus on private governance systems such as standards and codes of conduct implemented by firms and how government agencies (and government regulation) and civil society actors shape, contest and influence governance outcomes in global production networks.
