Enacting the Goals of Sustainable Development: Responsibility and Governance

Federation University Australia 4 – 6 September 2016

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.). Increasingly the term social responsibility, corporate responsibility, sustainability and governance have become intertwined and are often treated as synonymous.

With this in mind we have decide to adopt a theme of sustainable development for our forthcoming conference – which of course includes all the other terms within the theme. This raises the questions of what do we mean by sustainable development and how do we achieve this. These are questions which we will raise and address during this conference.

This conference is designed to act as a forum for the debate and analysis of contemporary issues in this broad area. It is intended to attract people from a wide variety of disciplines and geographic regions for an exchange of views.

The conference is intended to be interdisciplinary and welcomes contributions from anyone who has a perspective on this important issue. Papers are welcome on any topic related to this broad issue and suggested themes for papers include:

  • Defining sustainable development
  • The Triple Bottom Line and its critics
  • Environmental performance and auditing
  • Ethics and corporate behaviour
  • Globalisation and corporate activity
  • Governmental influences on corporate behaviour
  • Protests concerning corporate activity
  • Regulation of corporate social behaviour
  • Sustainability and marketing
  • The role of accounting in corporate accountability
  • The role of corporate governance
