ICCSR are inviting multidisciplinary papers which contribute knowledge on how companies are transforming value chain activities to benefit local communities.
LONDON, 24th September 2009
ICCSR are interested in conceptual, theoretical or empirical papers that present new research insights, ideas on business models, strategies and stakeholder engagement processes that a) respond to factors contributing to poverty; and b) advance sustainable community development in developing countries.
The papers can cover, but not limited to, the following areas:
• Corporations and community (and, or social) enterprise development
• Corporations and community asset-building
• Business approaches towards community empowerment and capacity building
• Social partnerships and Stakeholder engagement.
Authors interested in submitting a paper for presentation at the symposium should submit an abstract of 1,000 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 11th December 2009.
The ICCSR will also be preparing a special issue of Business & Society on this topic, to be edited by Prof. Jeremy Moon, Dr. Judy Muthuri and Dr Uwafiokun Idemudia. Papers presented at the symposium would be considered along with those responding to the journal’s own call for papers.
A more extensive outline of the symposium to be held on Tuesday 27th April 2010 is now available to download from www.nottingham.ac.uk/business/iccsr
