Victoria Azizi is a PhD Candidate at the ICGI (Insitute for Corporate Law, Governance and Innovation Policies) connected to the Private Law Department of the Faculty of Law in Maastricht. She is specialised in corporate law, especially in Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance.
The prime objective of her researchproject is assessing the legitimacy of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reporting frameworks in addition to the broader perspective of examining voluntary and mandatory CSR transparency regulation for corporations on international, supranational and national level. The added value is that it will assess whether the chosen frameworks effectively respond to the ‘’input, throughput and output’’ legitimacy theory and thereby touching upon the debate on how (soft and hard) law contribute to the legitimacy found in the examined CSR frameworks.
Victoria Azizi is a lecturer in the Master Courses Comparative Company Law and Corporate Social Responsibility (EN) and a supervisor of master and bachelor scriptures in the field of corporate law (EN/NL).
She is also the Editor-in-Chief of the official law journal Amsterdam Law Forum of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
