More information


Jochem’s main research focuses on processes of institutional change, revival and persistence. Current projects examine the revival and persistence of craft in organisational society, dynamics of business collective action, and mechanisms underlying socio-economic inequality. In his research, Jochem uses both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, including meta-analysis and fsQCA. 

His work on the revival of craft in the Dutch beer brewing industry has been published in Administrative Science Quarterly while related articles have appeared in Academy of Management Annals, Business History, in the Economics of the Craft Beer Revolution (Palgrave Macmillan) and in Constructing Identity in and around Organizations (Oxford University Press). He has also published on social venture legitimation in Academy of Management Journal.

Part of his ongoing work on business collective action in the alcohol industry around the issue of harmful alcohol use has been published in How Institutions Matter! (RSO, Emerald Insight).

Other ongoing projects that he is involved in include the use of history and collective memory in craft-based field transformation and symbolic communication, a meta-analysis of gender differences in academic research performance and the development of sustainable livelihoods in rural Indonesia.
