WU Research for Everyone
Bundling and sharing knowledge across different disciplines and making academic research accessible to a broader public are central to our mission.
STaR WU Faculty Member Michael Müller-Carmen from Human Resource Management Institute, together with Marcus Wagner at the University of Augsburg, are currently leading a cross-institutional research project on Comparative Green HRM. Green HRM studies the many different aspects of HRM that concern long-term environmental sustainability. For more information about other research projects on sustainability at the WU Vienna Institute for Human Resource Management, please click here (in German).
The international research study aims to explore the critical role of Human Resource Management in embedding corporate responsibility and sustainability among employees, management and executive leadership. The project is carried out in a collaborative effort between Prof. Dr. Günter Stahl and Marlene Gruber, MSc. MIM, at WU Vienna, and Prof. Dr. Jürgen Deller and his team at Leuphana University. The group is currently inviting internationally operating organizations interested in the topic to join the project.

Publications by WU Researchers tied to the SDGs
Dr. Kohlenberger is a renowned Social Scientist and Immigration Researcher. Her newest book, Das Fluchtparadox has been awarded the Science Book of the Year by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. It provides a "detailed analysis of how we deal with displacement and displaced persons, traces historical and recent developments, not just since the war in Ukraine, from a legal, social and individual perspective, and shows how we can arrive at a humane asylum and integration policy if we accept our moral responsibility and trust the strength of our institutions, our rule of law and our civil society". The book explores the issue of the asylum paradox, "the impossibility of legal access to (the right to) asylum, as a result of which refugees have to ‘break the law’ to access their rights, i.e. enter a state without an asylum title to apply for it within the borders of that state". The book is currently only available in German, but we can learn about the key themes outlined in a shorter article in English.
