Tony J Choi is an Assistant Professor in the Business-Society Management department at the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University. He completed his PhD (organization studies) in 2021 at the Schulich School of Business, York University and started his current position at RSM in 2021.
He uses quantitative methods with a focus on multilevel and panel analyses to investigate how community- and country-level ethical infrastructures control organizational wrongdoing and how organizations remain socially responsive in an effort to identify and avoid risks. As reflected in the emergence of sustainability due diligence, the importance of restraining wrongful actions such as human rights violations and excessive emissions is being more acknowledged in both academia and industries. Three particular streams of research I am currently focusing on include:
(1) the roles of social control agents, such as media, administrations and trade associations, in imposing formal and informal sanctions on wrongdoers, (2) the influences of socio-political and cultural environments, such as regional ideology and social capital, on organizational wrongdoing and (3) the process of social responsiveness concerning strategic risk management.
