Alice Evans

King's College London

Alice Evans researches how to improve workers’ rights in global production networks. She is currently writing a book on “Corporate Accountability: Causes and Consequences” (OUP). This examines: why some countries have made businesses liable for abuses in their global supply chains; the impact of such legislation; and the pathways to multilateral regulation. Through this comparative study, Alice investigates the move towards regulated globalization. She has published on: the politics of pro-worker reforms; the causes of falling inequality in Latin America; social movements; rising support for gender equality; cities as catalysts of social change; and the impact of the MDGs. A key insight of her work is that social change accelerates when we see that others are changing. She is a Lecturer at King's College London, a Research Associate at Harvard, with previous appointments at Cambridge and the LSE.
