Oludolapo Makinde is a doctoral student at the Peter A. Allard School of Law and a Liu Scholar at the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs. Her research investigates the practicability of adopting an integrated approach which fuses corporate governance and corporate social responsibility measures with artificial intelligence tools to effectively tackle corruption involving Canadian multinationals doing business in the Global South.
In addition to her doctoral research, Oludolapo engages with the Vancouver community on issues relating to anti-Black racism. In particular, as a 2019 UBC Sustainability Scholar under the auspices of the Sustainability Scholars’ Program, she investigated and identified key actions needed to address anti-Black racism in Vancouver. Her report which details her findings and recommendations drawn from literature and stakeholders, has contributed to ongoing municipal action on the subject.
