Dr. Mary Johnstone-Louis is the Programme Director of the Ownership Project at Oxford Said, a multidisciplinary, multiyear research project that examines the impact of ownership on responsible business behavior. The aim of the project is to deliver excellent independent analysis of how ownership influences businesses and the communities in which they operate. The project currently has a particular focus on large business families. Dr Johnstone-Louis summarized the project and its methods and shared the results of the empirical findings from the project so far. She outlined the geographical focus of the project and engaged the audience in their reactions to how the project findings might change if the Project was to engage with ownership in the Balkans.
