Paul's main research interests focus on the evolution of capitalism and business practices in liberalizing Asian economies and the reconfiguration of social and political networks in this context. Using institutional theory and qualitative methods, he looks into the development of the private sector and foreign multinationals in these economies with particular reference to India. This includes three main domains of research:

1. Multinational companies' interactions with local institutions and societies in Emerging Economies and the organization and management of international operations

2. The making of global corporations from Emerging Economies

3. Micro politics inside multinational companies (between subsidiaries and the headquarters), power issues in the workplace using a postcolonial perspective

Paul's geographical areas of interests are India, China and Middle Eastern economies (Gulf countries, Iran). His research concerns sensitive industries such as banking and finance, energy or defence.
