Biography

Kelly Kollman is a Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Glasgow where she has taught comparative politics and international relations since 2005.

Her research focuses on the influence that transnational networks and international norms have on domestic actors and policy outcomes. This work focuses on two distinct policy areas: the diffusion of same-sex unions policies across western democracies and the diffusion of corporate social responsibility norms to firms across the globe. She has recently published a book on the former topic entitled The Same-sex Unions Revolution in Western Democracies: International Norms and Domestic Policy Change (Manchester University Press 2013), which seeks to explain the almost universal adoption of SSU policies in Western Europe and North America since 1989.

Currently her work is focused on the ESRC-funded project Borderless Politics, which examines how and why transnational corporations engage in different forms of politics (lobbying, contributing to campaigns and participating in corporate social responsibility activity).

Kelly has published numerous peer-reviewed articles in such journals as International Studies Quarterly, International Studies Review, World Politics and Social Politics.
