3rd Organisational Governance Conference 8 & 9 August, 2013 Copenhagen, Denmark

3rd Organisational Governance Conference 

Global crises: Financial, environmental, sustainability and CSR crises in the aftermath of the subprime mortgage crisis 2007

8 & 9 August 2013

Call for Papers

There is considerable evidence that the field of social responsibility is changing and maturing. This can be seen from the issues which are of concern to people currently researching in the field. Thus we can see that ecological issues are of concern and so too are ethical issues. This concern is reflected in the field as a whole. The main issues which concern people however are with governance and with the supply chain. As far as the supply chain is concerned then this is reflected in a concern for the environment and for human rights and is not concentrated in the organisation but permeates the whole supply chain. This extends from the sourcing of raw material s through to customers and what concerns them.

As far as governance is concerned then there is a considerable increase in interest in governance in its broader interpretation. Probably this interest has been heightened not just by the corporate scandals that we have witnessed but also by the economic and financial crisis that we have experienced. And this concern for governance is broader that corporations, extending also to the governance of markets and countries and to governance in a global economy. And governance itself has expanded its are of concern to more than just a concern with owners and investors. Now governance is – rightly – concerned with relationships between a firm and all of its stakeholders.

The economic problems of the world, stemming from the financial crisis of 2007 continue to exist of course and continue to affect every country in the world – a continuing reminder of the global environment in which we live. Interestingly however they are affecting different countries to a different extent – and these differences may be related to differing governances. Much has been written about these economic problems while much more remains to be written but this can be seen to be not the only focus of attention. Certainly social issues, human rights issues, environmental issues and climate change are all causes of concern and have been reflected in concerns Issues regarding social responsibility are significant at the macro level of the economy, at the corporate level and also at the micro level of individual behaviour. These are issues which we would like to explore further at the conference

· Organizational Governance and Firm CSR/Sustainability Values
