Me in Brief
With his pioneering scholarly works, Kevin Jackson is respected as one of the leading scholars in international business ethics and legal philosophy worldwide. His research papers have been published in many top-tier journals, among them Business Ethics Quarterly, Journal of Business Ethics, Brooklyn Journal of International Law, Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and Law and Philosophy. Jackson's book, Charting Global Responsibilities: Legal Philosophy and Human Rights (University Press of America) was presented to His Holy Dali Lama by the U. S. State Department as a gift. The Hindu acclaimed the work for its "fascinating chapters, felicitous expositions and fundamental thinking," noting that "it is critical that this volume becomes a high priority task of avant-garde jurists." Dr. Jackson incorporates thoughts from his practical law experience into another of his books, Building Reputational Capital (Oxford University Press). The book is not only significant and influential in the scholarly literature dealing with reputation as a component of political, legal, economic and moral issues, particularly as they arise in the global public realm, but also practical for corporations and business people to form strategy to protect and increase their intangible assets. Jackson's most recent book, Virtuosity in Business (University of Pennsylvania Press), calls on business leaders and executives to expand their thinking by appreciating the profound relevance of areas normally reserved liberal arts, such as philosophy and music, to business and economics.
Currently, Kevin Jackson holds the Daniel Janssen Chair of Corporate Social Responsibility at Solvay Business School of the Université libre de Bruxelles. He is also a tenured Senior Professor of Law and Ethics at Fordham University in New York City and a Senior Fellow with the Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, New Jersey. Prof. Jackson has taught at Georgetown University (1990-1991), Peking University (1999-2000) and Princeton University (2006-2008).
Dr. Jackson has delivered seminars on business ethics and legal philosophy for organizations and leaders worldwide, including the securities industry for the NASD; financial services organizations, including LOMA/LIMRA; the India Supreme Court; and a Russian delegation to the U.S. Department of State. Concerning numerous legal and ethical issues facing corporations, he has been a frequent commentator on CBS Evening News, CNN, Fox News, and National Public Radio.
Inspired by his youth-years piano teacher, Mr. Gray Perry, a protégé of Isidor Philipp, Professor Jackson is still devoted to music through piano performing, composing, and improvising.
