Professor Jackson is a critical social scientist working in the area of cross-cultural management and organization with a focus on sustainable development in sub-Saharan Africa. He has undertaken a groundbreaking project across 15 countries on Management and Change in Africa funded by DANIDA. Concerned about the ethical aspects of working across cultural contexts he has undertaken research on the management of international development projects and management of NGOs in Africa working with the International NGO Training and Research Centre (INTRAC) in Oxford and Community Development Research Associates (CDRA) in Cape Town, as well as obtaining grants from the British Council and British Academy in focusing on the international development community’s provision for fighting HIV/AIDS. Through a grant from the Sandisa Imbewu Fund, Rhodes University, South Africa, his current research focuses on the implications for sustainable development of China’s engagement with Africa. His focus on culture has also led to his investigations into indigenous knowledge and practices, looking at the informal economy in Africa as a major site of indigenous enterprise, and the way social media is changing local culture, the way it is communicated, and what we can learn from this for Africa’s sustainable development and cultural heritage. He is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Cross Cultural Management (London: Sage).
