Levi’s current research focuses on the conditions under which people come to believe their governments are legitimate and the consequences of those beliefs for compliance, consent, and the rule of law; and how organizations provoke member willingness to act beyond material interest.

She has been actively engaged with such organizations as the World Justice Project; World Bank; Just Supply Chains network; Jobs with Justice ; and the now-defunct Scholars, Artists, and Writers for Social Justice (SAWSJ).
