Layna Mosley is Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research and teaching focus on the connections between the global economy and domestic policy choices and outcomes. One stream of her research examines the effect of multinational production on workers’ rights in developing countries (for instance, her 2011 book, Labour Rights and Multinational Production), as well as the ways in which US trade policies might affect worker rights abroad. She’s also interested in private sector-based efforts to govern labour rights, such as the Bangladesh Accord on Building and Fire Safety. Another stream of Mosley’s research focuses on the politics of sovereign debt, and on how professional investors evaluate and react to political institutions and government policy choices. While at the Hertie School, Mosley will focus her research on the politics of sovereign debt issuance.
