IABS – the International Association for Business & Society – is characterised by a lively scholarly conversation in a range of areas that are likely to be of interest to CSR scholars – stakeholder theory and management, business ethics, ecological, sustainable and environmental thinking, governance, business-government relations, corporate responsibility, corporate social performance, and comparative and international business ethics, among many others.
The 2011 conference will be held June 23-26, and be housed in many of the historical buildings of the City with a reception at the famous roman baths. This is the first time the conference has come to the UK in its history, and presents a real opportunity to showcase the great work business and society work being done in the UK and in Europe. One of the attractive aspects of IABS is the relatively simple submission requirement – we ask for 5 (or so) page abstracts for papers, discussion topics etc – and the opportunity to present and receive feedback on work that is at an earlier stage of development.
Further details of the conference can be found at http://www.iabs.net/Conference.aspx, and whilst the proposal submission deadline has now past, those with a particular interest should contact Steve at the address below.
We hope to see as many of you as possible in Bath next year,
All the best,
Steve Brammer (Conference Chair)
Professor of Business & Society,
University of Bath, UK.
