Norman Bishara's research interests include the areas of corporate governance and corruption as a constraint on business activity, international legal reform and business ethics in the developing world with a focus on the Middle East, and covenants not to compete as an obstacle to employee mobility and knowledge transfer. His academic field research includes a position as the principal researcher and project consultant with the Lebanese Transparency Association (LTA) in Beirut, an affiliate of Transparency International, where he coauthored the first Lebanese Code of Corporate Governance. Professor Bishara's recent research is focused on corporate governance in the Middle East to circumvent a business ethics glass ceiling, corporate corruption in the executive suite, and noncompete agreement enforcement variations across the United States and the implications for highly skilled labor mobility.
