Anita Dhillon , PHD
Dr. Dhillon studies how public and nonprofit organizations can be designed and run to best achieve equitable social policy outcomes. She is especially interested in how such organizations manage their internal and external environments to implement complex social programs that serve vulnerable populations in society. She explores these topics from a cross-national perspective.
Her research focuses on two key environmental factors (the influence of state and local political environments, and the management of organizational human capital), and how they interact to affect organizational outcomes. Her research has been published in International Public Management Journal, State Politics and Policy Quarterly, and the Journal of Nonprofit and Public Affairs.
