Personal profile


Dr Ben Faigen's PhD thesis, awarded by Copenhagen Business School, explored organisations that are owned and/or controlled by their workers in a range of contexts spanning worker cooperative formation, privatised workplaces and different forms of shared capitalism. Among his research interests are the influences on attitudes toward employee ownership as part of the broader relationship between education and the economy.

In addition to having lectured in sociology with a focus on Asian societies and economies, Ben has accumulated extensive teaching experience at secondary school level in both state and independent sectors. He has taught across senior and middle years in Victorian schools. Additionally, he has taught the International Baccalaureate diploma and middle years programmes based in Austria and Denmark.
