Morshed Mannan, LL.M. (Adv.) worked on a doctoral dissertation on the emergence of democratic firms in the platform economy at Leiden Law School, Leiden University. Prior to the MWF programme, Morshed was a Research Associate at the Robert Schuman Centre and is a Research Affiliate of the Institute for the Cooperative Digital Economy at The New School in New York City. During the course of his PhD, Morshed acted as an expert for the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs on the legal framework for platform cooperatives and consulted for the International Co-operative Alliance and the NCBA CLUSA-International on topics of cooperative law.

As a Max Weber Fellow, Morshed hopes to continue researching his two main interests: blockchain governance and platform cooperatives. In addition to writing articles with his MWF mentor, Dr. Primavera de Filippi, Morshed hopes to publish a book building on his doctoral dissertation. He also wishes to collaborate with other Max Weber Fellows who share his research interests.

Since 2012, Morshed has had experience in lecturing and coordinating courses on international commercial law, administrative law, comparative corporate law, and media law at B.A. and M.A. level at the London College of Legal Studies (Bangladesh), Leiden Law School, the New School and the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. He has also supervised several B.A. and M.A. theses.
