About me

Dorottya Sallai is an Assistant Professorial Lecturer in the Department of Management. She completed her doctoral research in Management and Public Policy at King's College London. Her PhD focused on the Europeanization of corporate lobbying in the enlarged European Union. Her study on European Union lobbying and post-socialist network capitalism has been published in the Journal of Common Market Studies (JCMS). Her subsequent work investigates state-firm relations, corporate political activities from the perspective of comparative capitalism, multinational companies’ political strategies in emerging market contexts and the impact of different institutional and political systems on corporate strategies. Currently she investigates the impact of authoritarian and populist states on firm strategies.
