Norin Arshed joined the University of Dundee in October 2017. She is an economist by background with professional experience both in the public and private sectors. She completed her PhD in 2012 at Strathclyde University and undertook a post-doc for 8 months before moving to Heriot-Watt University in 2013. Her work concentrates on enterprise policy. In particular, the role and contribution from those closely linked to the formulation process (ministers and civil servants), whilst also examining how enterprise policy is implemented (national, regional and local economic development agencies), and how entrepreneurs/SMEs experience and utilise such policy initiatives. Her research interests also include exploring festivals, accelerators and the context in her work within entrepreneurship and business strategy.  Institutional theory is the theoretical lens used to highlight the dynamics of the policy process in her work.
