Research interests

Emanuela Delbufalo researches on Supply Chain Management issues, with particular reference to the critical issues of global supply chains. Her main publications are about two main lines of research: the first concerns the relationship between mechanisms of trust-based governance and risk in international supply chains; the second investigates the issues of outsourcing logistics and procurement with particular regard to the fashion and healthcare sectors. Her recent interest is the deepening of the contribution potentially offered by the Agency Theory to the analysis of vertical relationships in supply chains.
