Rashedur Chowdhury is a lecturer at the Graduate School of Business and Law at University College Dublin. Chowdhury specializes in understanding
the dynamic relationship between firms and marginalized stakeholders, conceptualizing
how marginalized stakeholders influence firms, and how firms respond.
Rashedur's empirical works include research of access to low-cost HIV/AIDS
medicines in South Africa, low-paid workers in Bangladesh, and mining activists
in South Asia and the UK. His most recent project examines rhetoric and reality
in the context of the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh; making sense of how victims
of Rana Plaza see their own situation. He also examines how victims remake
their lives under an extreme condition and contribute to their own and to societal
well-being. Chowdhury earned a B.Sc. from School of Business and Management, Queen Mary, University of London, a M.Sc. from Warwick Business School, University of Warwick and a Ph.D. in Management Studies from University of Cambridge Judge Business School.
