About Irene Henriques
My research interests span economics, stakeholder management and sustainability. My research and teaching are highly interdisciplinary. In the past few years I have undertaken interdisciplinary work with York University colleagues in science and law. My management research has its theoretical bases in both stakeholder theory and social sciences such as microeconomics, finance, management and ecology. I am currently examining the role that financial institutions, governments and businesses play in encouraging or discouraging social Indigenous entrepreneurs.
