Jacobo Ramirez’s research interests focus on the areas of HRM, leadership and organisational change in complex institutional environments (e.g. security risks, social unrest, displacement and fragile states). Through studying private sector, in particular Danish firms in the Global South, Jacobo has been able to design novel methodologies and strategies to study and propose HRM strategies to overcome institutional change. Jacobo’s current research agenda focuses on the innovative HRM and organisational strategies in public and private organisations in Denmark and the Global South, where they aim to integrate an international workforce and to overcome security risk, respectively.
