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. The concept of CSR has gradually spilled over to the other fields of inquiry so much so that today we can speak about the inclusion of social responsibility in any type of human activity (business, politics, justice, etc.)

Since its formulation as a concept, the CSR has continuously evolved under the pressure of consumers, concern about the environment, as well as debates revolving around the need of improving the environment and labour standards. Since the 1990s, the pressures of globalization have led to growing attention paid to the relationship between the CSR and community issues and human rights. The recent global financial crisis brought even more vigorous the debate about the role of businesses and their responsibilities toward the society. Some authors place among the causes of the crisis the companies’ behaviour and the ignorance on real community issues.

As far as governance is concerned there is a new concept emerging – sustainable governance. Certainly social issues (ageing, migration etc), human rights issues, environmental issues (climate change, resource depletion, etc) are all causes of concern. 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. 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.

The list below is only indicative of possible topic areas that contributors may wish to consider while they develop their papers for the conference:

· Organisational Governance and Firm CSR/Sustainability Values

· CSR/Sustainability Regulation and Organisational Governance

· Organisational Governance and CSR/Sustainability Reporting Quality

· Organisational Governance Mechanisms and CSR/Sustainability

· Organisational Governance and Business Ethics

· Organisational Governance and in a Sustainable Market

· Organisational Governance and Sustainable Risk Management

· Organisational Governance and Sustainable Supply Chain

· Organisational Governance and Firms Sustainability

· Organisational Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility

· Organisational Governance and Stakeholders

· Theoretical perspectives on Organisational Governance

· Governance as a Macroeconomic issue

· Regulatory Failures and Organisational Governance

· Social Responsibility and Community issues

· Organisational Governance in the Public Sector/ NGO sector

· Audit and organisational governance

· Models of organisational governance

Offers to run workshops, symposia, poster sessions, themed tracks or alternative events are especially welcome. Please contact Prof. dr. Rodica Milena Zaharia (milena_zaharia@yahoo.com) with suggestions.

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 June 2014 by email to davideacrowther@aol.com No more than 2 papers will be accepted from any author.

The Macro Environmen

The components of the macro environment have always had a major impact on the way organisations, whether global, national, or regional for that matter, have operated. With the increasing and more pronounced role of CSR, those components have been placed under the spotlight with more scrutiny. This conference aims to examine the influence of individual macro environmental factors on business as well as not for profit organisations.
Although the conference will be focused on the macro environment, papers addressing all other areas of CSR are welcome. Thus papers are welcome on any topic related to this broad theme and suggested topics for papers include:

• Impact of national and international politics on CSR
• Influences of economics on organisation’s CSR initiatives
• Social, cultural and demographics and CSR
• Organisational CSR and compliance with legislation
• CSR and business ethics
• Impact of technology on CSR
• Ecology as a constituent of CSR
• Corporate reputation and CSR
• Corporate governance and sustainability
• Management and CSR
• Evaluating CSR activities
• Developing sustainable strategies
• Accounting for climate change
• Social entrepreneurship
• Dealing with Hubbert’s Peak
• Measuring and managing virtual water content
• Carbon footprint accounting
• Socially responsible business activities
• Globalisation and Corporate Activity
• Regulation of Corporate Social and Environmental Behaviour
• Relationship between CSR and corporate performance
• CSR and value creation

Offers to run workshops, symposia, poster sessions, themed tracks or alternative events are especially welcome. Please contact Khosro Jahdi with suggestions.

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 April 2014 by email todavideacrowther@aol.com  No more than 2 submissions will be accepted from any author. We will publish conference proceedings. Full details concerning other publishing opportunities for the papers presented at the conference will be provided.

Doctoral Colloquium
This year we will again be running a doctoral colloquium as part 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.
Abstracts for the Colloquium of 200-500 words should be sent by 1st April 2014  by email to davideacrowther@aol.com and specify they are for the Colloquium.

In order to allow detailed feedback full papers will be required in advance of the

Venue of the Conference
The conference will be held at Bradford College, Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK,
30 June – 2 July 2014. The conference fee will be announced later and will include meals and conference materials. Suggestions for appropriate accommodations will also be provided.  An optional sightseeing tour will be organised at the end of the conference; full details will be available later.

Call for Papers

As always 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 significant issues of the present. So at this conference there will be a focus on the theme of

Rio + 20 and after

It is now 20 years since the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, better known as the Earth Summit was held in Rio de Janeiro. The issues addressed in the conference included:

• A scrutiny of patterns of production – particularly production with hazardous components or waste, such as lead in petrol, or poisonous waste from other products;
• Alternative sources of energy to replace fossil fuels which had already been linked to global climate change;
• A reliance on public transport systems in order to reduce vehicle emissions, congestion in cities and the health problems caused by polluted air and smog;
• The growing scarcity of water as a resource in various parts of the world.

An important achievement of the conference was an agreement on the Climate Change Convention which in turn led to the Kyoto Protocol. Another was agreement to “not carry out any activities on the lands of indigenous peoples that would cause environmental degradation or that would be culturally inappropriate”. Now 20 years later it is time to examine the effects of this conference.

Although the conference will be focused on Rio + 20, papers addressing all other areas of CSR are welcome. Thus papers are welcome on any topic related to this broad theme and suggested topics for papers include:

• Post Rio activity and inactivity
• CSR and environmental activity
• CSR and business ethics
• CSR and a low carbon economy
• CSR and sustainability
• Corporate governance and sustainability
• Evaluating CSR activities
• Developing sustainable strategies
• Accounting for climate change
• Social entrepreneurship
• Dealing with Hubbert’s Peak
• Measuring and managing virtual water content
• Carbon footprint accounting
• Socially responsible business activities
• Globalisation and Corporate Activity
• Regulation of Corporate Social and Environmental Behaviour
