Dr Munir was also invited to speak on a select panel on Methodological Choices and Theoretical Developments in Institutional Theory on 4 August. He joined a set of scholars from a range of diverse disciplinary backgrounds and used examples from his own research to reflect on the interrelations between methodology and theory. Finally Dr Munir was also involved in facilitating a Professional Development Workshop on Inequality.

He commented:

I have always found working with graduate students and junior faculty to be a very rewarding and fulfilling experience. Being asked to do what I enjoy is not only flattering but also great fun!”
