Research in the Peter Faber Business School shifts the attention from the technical/financial to the social/interpersonal context. With a particularly strong scholarly profile in the Human Resource Management and Organizational Behaviour arena, our publications feature in such world-class outlets as Human Resource Management Review, Human Resource Management (US), Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, British Journal of Management, and Journal of Vocational Behavior.

In the Thomas More Law School scholarly activities range from mediation and alternative dispute resolution, intellectual property and commercial law to human rights law, international economic law and social justice endeavours.

Academy members of staff consult nationally and internationally and publish their works in leading international book and journal outlets. Examples include articles in the Melbourne Journal of International Law, European Intellectual Property Review, and European Journal of International Law alongside edited volumes and monographs, such as Rethinking International Law and Justice (Ashgate), United Nations Reform: Heading North or South? (Routledge), Mediation: Skills and Techniques (LexisNexis Butterworths) and The Law of Globalization: An Introduction (Kluwer).
