The Network conducts critical realist, interdisciplinary research infused with Catholic social principles to understand the contexts and forces which influence business leaders in adopting more humanistic and socially responsible practices and the outcomes of such practices for the well-being of various stakeholders.  Research projects, both conceptual and empirical, include the development of multi-stakeholder models of business for educational and management development, case studies of humanistic and socially responsible managers and companies, developments in multi-stakeholder corporate governance policies and practices, among others. Currently, the network has two research assistants, namely Lerma B. Bautista and Alvin Neil A. Gutierrez. They are currently DBA students who shared their research interests on critical realism, humanistic management, and responsible research.
