Call for papers BAM CSR SIG event

Corporate Social Responsibility Special Interest Group – Bath 23rd June 2011

Call for papers, presentations and posters

The British Academy of Management Corporate Social Responsibility Special Interest Group and The University of Bath School of Management are jointly hosting a research symposium aimed at supporting and encouraging research in CSR and related fields.

If you are a doctoral student, a masters-level student, or perhaps a more experienced researcher beginning to explore this area then this symposium is for you. The aim of the symposium is to provide a supportive, encouraging and stimulating forum at which researchers can gain valuable feedback on their work and ideas.  A panel of discussants will be assembled from research-active academics to facilitate discussion and feedback.

The organizers welcome presentations based on short abstracts or full papers, as well as poster presentations. Topics to be discussed should be based in the following broad areas of enquiry:

Corporate social responsibility; Corporate citizenship; Sustainable organizations; Business ethics; Stakeholder management; Social reporting. Submissions may be empirical or theoretical, and all perspectives are welcomed on a case by case basis.

The symposium is taking place the same day as the launch of the International Association for Business and Society (IABS) annual conference at The University of Bath.  This has given us the opportunity to arrange for delegates to the symposium to attend the evening reception for the IABS conference on the 23rd June and enjoy reduced rates for accommodation at the University of Bath. Symposium attendees will therefore have the opportunity for more discussion in a less formal setting and to meet with those attending the main IABS conference.

As with all BAM CSR SIG events, we try to offer the best possible value.  Therefore the prices for the two options are as follows:

1.            BAM CSR event only @ £25 (Includes refreshments)

2.            BAM CSR event, overnight accommodation in The University of Bath and attendance at the IABS reception on the evening of 23rd June @ £100

For application details and further information please contact Dr Simon Brooks on or simply submit a 150 word abstract for consideration in the first instance.

IABS Conference 2011

2011 Annual Meeting of the International Association for Business & Society (IABS) Bath, United Kingdom • June 23-26, 2011 (

The theme of the 2011 IABS meeting is “Modern Slavery? Well being in the 21st century workplace”. The modern world of work is increasingly dynamic, competitive, complex and uncertain. Globalization, the de-localization of production, and the broadening of the geographical scope of firms that accompanies it, increasing work intensity, the changing nature of careers, and the decline of labor unions as the traditional means of employee representation are all features of the 21st century workplace. Many of these trends are associated with significant ethical issues that raise questions for business and society scholarship that prior research has only partially addressed. The theme is intended to provoke our community to bring its distinctive and innovative insights to bear upon these issues.

Bath is one of the world’s most beautiful cities and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. The only naturally occurring hot springs in the United Kingdom attracted the Romans to construct a spa resort in Bath during their occupation. Later, Edgar, the first “King of the English” was crowned at Bath Abbey in 973. Bath is perhaps most famous for being a thriving spa resort during the Georgian period, during which time the city was substantially redeveloped and of the architectural features of the city were built. Jane Austen lived in Bath in the early 19th century and set two of her novels in the City.

IABS is a learned society devoted to research and teaching about the relationships between business, government and society. Our over 300 members hail from more than more than 20 countries; in addition to academics from more than 100 universities, members also include employees of corporations and non-profit organizations.
