CSR Futures: Knowledge & Practice - ICCSR 10th Anniversary Conference

CSR Futures: Knowledge & Practice - ICCSR 10th Anniversary Conference

09:00, 26 April 12


Conference Outline:
This two day conference marks the 10th Anniversary of the founding of the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility.

In recent years CSR has emerged as both a sub-field of business and management studies and as a basic management concept.  In essence it refers to business responsibility to and for society but the meaning of these terms alone has provoked controversy. So where is CSR going?  Is this just a matter of issues and context?  Or is CSR acquiring some stable attributes?  If, so what are these attributes and what explains them?  Is CSR becoming institutionalised, and again, if so how and why?  Is the future CSR more about responsibility, a business case, ethics, sustainability, or even compliance.

The conference will consist of eight parallel streams:

Asian CSR and its Dynamics
Beyond the Attitude-Behaviour Gap: Novel Perspectives on Consumer Ethics
Business and Development: Moving Forward on MDGSs
CSR Context and Dynamics
CSR & Governance: Comparative and International Perspectives
CSR Impact: Beyond Financial Performance
Leadership for Sustainability
Organisations in Transition – Exploring the Role of Accounting and Reporting for Organisational Change toward Sustainability

There will also be combined practitioner and academic keynote presentations and practitioner and academic panels which will address the broad question of CSR futures.
