Regulation of employment
Risk seeking behaviour
Professor Willman's research falls into two discrete areas. He has published extensively in the labour relations field, both on the structure and conduct of labour unions and on governance mechanisms for employment contracts. The second strand of work is on the sociology of financial markets where his interests are in the role and conduct of traders in investment banks, and the emergence of private wealth institutions.
