Call for Papers

As usual the conference is intended to be interdisciplinary and welcomes contributions from anyone who has a perspective on this important issue. This time we will be focusing on one of the most urgent issues of the present. So at this conference there will be a focus on the theme of

CSR and Global Governance

The current financial crisis, much as previous ones, has highlighted failures in governance and failures in regulation. Indeed some have argued that the regulators are more guilty even than the perpetrators and should be sanctioned accordingly. There is of course one flaw in this argument and one problem with managing the prevention of future financial crisis and this is concerned with the recognition of and regulation of a truly global market for finance, trade, labour etc. We therefore consider that it is timely to look in greater detail at this issue, although papers addressing other areas of CSR are welcome. Thus papers are welcome on any topic related to this broad theme and suggested topics for papers include:

  • Risks and different dimensions of CSR
  • Governance and regulation National vs. supra-national governance
  • Free markets and governance
  • Multi-national Corporate Accountability
  • Social responsibility and free markets
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Socially responsible business activities
  • lobalisation and Corporate Activity
  • Regulation of Corporate Social and Environmental Behaviour
  • Governmental Influences on Corporate Accountability
  • CSR and Corporate Governance
  • CSR and Stakeholders
  • CSR and Corporate Risk
  • Corporate Responsibility and Triple Bottom Line
  • Sanctions for non-compliance in a global market
  • Regulating the regulators

Offers to run workshops, symposia, poster sessions, themed tracks or alternative events are especially welcome. Please contact Jelena Debeljak with suggestions. Also, we are preparing an optional tourist extension package for those who are interested to stay longer in Croatia to experience more of the local culture and resort areas that Croatia has to offer. Please contact Jelena those of you who are interested.

Although preference will be given to full papers, abstracts of 200-500 words will also be considered. All papers and abstracts should be sent by 1st March 2010 by email to  David Crowther. No more than 2 papers will be accepted from any author.

Scientific Committee

We will publish proceedings and full details concerning other publishing opportunities for the papers presented at the conference will be provided during the conference.

 

Doctoral Colloquium

This year we will again be running a doctoral colloquium on one day of the conference. The aim will be to give detailed feedback to doctoral researchers concerning their papers. Feedback will be specific to each person and their research, and will be given by an experienced academic in the field. The colloquium will be an integral part of the conference and all delegates will be expected to participate fully in the conference but the sessions will give extra time to presenters – to allow for discussion and formal feedback. This colloquium will be organised by Professor Dr Güler Aras and abstracts of 200-500 words should be sent by 1st March 2010 by email to Guler Aras. In order to allow detailed feedback full papers will be required in advance of the conference – full details will be given to participants upon acceptance.

Following the tradition established at the 6th conference in Kuala Lumpur, a Young Academician award will be made during this colloquium.

 

Venue of the Conference

The conference will be held in the Zagreb School of Economics & Management. The conference fee will be announced later and will include accommodation, meals and conference materials. An optional sightseeing tour will be organised at the end of the conference; full details will be available later. We look forward to welcoming you to Zagreb in 2010 for the 9th conference in the series. Full and updated details can be found at the conference webiste
