Matthew Amengual (Ph.D. MIT 2011) is an Associate Professor in International Business at the Saïd Business School. He is also an Official Fellow at Kellogg College. His is a political scientist whose work explores the politics of promoting economic development that is both equitable and sustainable. His first book, Politicized Enforcement in Argentina: Labor and Environmental Regulation (Cambridge University Press) explores subnational variation in the regulatory enforcement in Argentina. In it, he asks the question: Why do states enforce regulations in some places, and in some industries, but not in others? The book shows how informal linkages between state officials and groups within society allow officials to gain the operational resources and political support necessary for enforcement. He is currently writing a book, tentatively titled Direct Contestation, that develops a theory to explain different outcomes that arise when firms face demands by societal actors unmediated by state institutions. Empirically, this book draws analyses of mining operations in Bolivia and Peru. Matthew also has an active research agenda on the ways in which labour standards are enforced in global supply chains. This research has included a study of the interaction between domestic and translational labour relation in the Dominican Republic. His research has been published in World Development, Industrial & Labor Relations Review, Regulation & Governance, and Desarrollo Económico. He is an Associate Editor at the Industrial & Labor Relations Review. Prior to joining Oxford, Matthew was an Associate Professor of Work and Organization Studies at MIT.
