Submit a manuscript abstract or full paper to the government of CSR: Combining private and public means for a sustainable future workshop.
Over the last decade, the topic of CSR has found enormous attention by management and organization scholars, as well as political scientists and legal scholars.
This workshop intends to explore how public actors influence corporate responsibilities through direct and indirect means, and how the two fields of governing the public policies and laws, and the private forms of multi-stakeholder governance interact and influence each other.
We have only begun to understand how these different layers, mechanisms and outcomes of the governance interactions influence each other and are embedded in different contexts.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together interdisciplinary perspectives that combine organizational and management theory insights with sociological and political science perspectives to further our understanding of how private and public means of intervention can be effectively combined to promote a sustainable future.
For the workshop, we invite empirical and conceptual papers that may address topics related to softer and harder forms of governance and their interactions at macro-, meso- and micro-level. Possible topics include:
- Efficiency and legitimacy of the new governance forms,
- Inter-governmental interactions and their influence on CSR and ESG issues,
- Accountability and deliberative dynamics related to CSR and ESG,
- Competition or struggles between private and public actors to define corporate social responsibility, sustainability or ESG,
- New actors and alliances involved in the production, maintenance and transformation of the new governance dynamics across different scales and places, and geopolitical dynamics of corporate social responsibility,
- Development, impact, and meaning of recent ESG-related regulations.
Scholars who wish to submit a manuscript to the paper development workshop should send an extended abstract (up to 1000 words) to [email protected] by 15th December 2022. Authors will be notified of paper acceptance for roundtables by 21st December 2022.
Full papers, for those who want to share one, are expected by 16th January 2023.
Registration for the workshop is required by 16th January. It is possible to attend the workshop without submitting a paper.
The registration for the workshop is free.
The target audience of the workshop are scholars in different disciplines (management, political science, sociology, finance) with an interest in the government and CSR. We expect and encourage submissions from doctoral students, postdocs, and junior faculty.
