2015 Biennial Conference on The Business and Economics of Peace

We are pleased to announce the Institute for Economics and Peace and American University’s Kogod School of Business 2015 biennial conference on “The Business and Economics of Peace,” will take place 10-11 April, 2015 at American University in Washington, D.C., supported by PRME and Greenleaf Publishing.

The conference will convene graduate, advanced undergraduate students, academics, and practitioners in the following areas of study: business, public policy, international relations, economics, and statistics, among others. The conference seeks to showcase the best student work related to the key conference themes: 1) Economics, Business and Peace, 2) Measuring Peace, 3) the Analysis and Management of Risk, and 4) Resilient Businesses, Resilient Societies: Promoting Positive Peace. In addition to the student presentations, established academics and industry leaders will share the latest ideas in research and practice. Discussions and networking opportunities with practitioners will be emphasized in the program.   

The inaugural conference took place at the Kogod School of Business in April 2013, and brought together 40 speakers and 100 participants for research presentations, panel discussions, career development, and networking. Coverage of the conference can be found here and conference proceedings here.

This conference seeks to focus greater attention on the interrelationships between business, peace, and economics and emphasize the value in looking at these issues from multiple disciplines and perspectives. With advances in fact-based peace metrics led by IEP through the Global Peace Index and related research, as well as further study into the links between peace and commerce by international academics, a base of research exists to propel further study on the measurement of peace and the role business in peace economics.

Call for Submissions:

Graduate students are invited to submit original research papers and case studies within the broad scope of the conference. Submissions focusing on the application of novel research methodologies (e.g., GIS) and original multi-media productions will also be considered. 

A committee composed of AU faculty and IEP representatives will review all submitted papers for presentation in the conference. The best papers from the conference will be selected and published in Greenleaf Publishing’s journal Business, Peace and Sustainable Development, the first journal dedicated to the mutual contribution of business and peace. Sumission deadline in 12 January, 2015.

PRME Workshop in Beijing: Launching and Implementing a Responsible Management Education Program

We would like to draw your attention to and invite interested individuals to attend the new Copenhagen Business School and CBS-Executive program: “Launching and Implementing a Responsible Management Education Program.”

The course is aimed at individuals whom we sometimes refer to as “PRME Ministers.” This term underlines the quasi-political role PRME administrators play in our institutions. We often face (on our own or in a small team) the daunting task of reviewing teaching activities and suggesting ways to improve our institution’s alignment with PRME.

By joining this academic development course you will have an opportunity to review the key steps required for the launch and implementation of a Responsible Management Education Program. You will do so in a group of peers with whom you can share experiences and suggestions for how to overcome challenges. Following the success the program had in 2014, we are planning to hold it at run it again in 2015 at the following locations:

  • 11-13 May in Beijing, China
  • 17-19 September in Copenhagen, Denmark

It is recommend that participating institutions send at least two participants (one faculty member and one administrator) since the practice of responsible management education requires interventions from across your institution. Furthermore, teams of participants will find it easier to implement learnings from the seminar when back on their home campus.

Please find out more about how to sign up for the program here: http://www.cbs-executive.dk/program/prme

If you would like to indicate your preliminary interest, please follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PRME2015

For brief testimonies of past participants, please watch the video, where you can hear the views colleagues from Canada, Switzerland and Hong Kong had on the program.

      This year’s UK and Ireland Conference in Glasgow comes just after the 2015 PRME Global Forum in New York, and only months before the United Nations (UN) General Assembly announces its plans for post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in New York in September (25-27th). Those plans aim to build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with even greater ambition, and an emphasis to address the structural drivers of poverty, inequality and unsustainable development by 2030.

      The potential of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to make significant contributions to this UN agenda is widely acknowledged, be that through research, community engagement, and education to produce the responsible citizens and leaders of tomorrow. This commitment manifests itself in an expanding community of PRME signatories across the world, and the emergence of several regional chapters, amongst which is the regional PRME Chapter UK and Ireland, formed in 2013.

      This 2nd PRME Chapter UK and Ireland conference aims to create a forum to bring together advocates of responsible citizenship, management and leadership from universities and institutions across the UK and Ireland. The conference is open to academic and nonacademic audiences, and not limited to members of the PRME Chapter UK and Ireland or signatories of the UN-supportedPRME.

      The conference offers an opportunity to discuss the post 2015 development agenda and consider the implications for implementation of the PRME agenda.

      The Organising Committee is inviting proposals for ten-minute presentations on any aspect of education for sustainable development and responsible management education. See the invitation to submit proposals here.

      Save the Date – Responsible Management Education Research Conference

      The Gerhart Center for Philanthropy and Civic Engagement at School of Business at the American University in Cairo and the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Regional Chapter MENA (Middle East and North Africa), are pleased to announce the 2nd Responsible Management Education Research Conference: Inclusive Business, will be held 7-8 September at the American University of Cairo (AUC), in Cairo, Egypt.

      The main theme of the conference, Inclusive Businesses, is a dynamic and growing field of business practice that is changing the development solution matrix for institutions, and actors working towards poverty alleviation, equitable development and inclusive growth. With a more strategic and developmental footprint, inclusive businesses transcend the conventional CSR model by  advancing profitable supply and value chain partnerships with the poor, and socially responsible interventions. Serving as an effective and sustainable framework for poverty alleviation and empowerment of the poor at the base of the pyramid (BoP), there is much to learn about the role, concepts and models of inclusive businesses in order to unleash its potential.

      Building on the 1st Responsible Management Education Research Conference held in Chur, Switzerland in October 2014, the aim of this year’s Conference is to foster knowledge exchange and networking opportunities by connecting emerging as well as established regional PRME Chapters, PRME Working Groups and other entities in the PRME community (both signatories and non-signatories), with key regional stakeholders and the wider audience of educators and representatives of universities, students, business, government, media, and civil society organizations; eager to advance their knowledge and skills integrating responsible management and sustainable development into their professional efforts.

      Call for Contributions

      The conference invites contributions to research sessions, interactive panel and roundtable discussions and poster sessions and demonstrations on various aspects of inclusive businesses, covering a broad spectrum of topics including poverty reduction, social entrepreneurship and social businesses, startups in the value chains of regional and multinational corporations, models for aggregating the production capacity of small producers, scaling up initiatives for inclusive businesses, impact investing and the role of strategic philanthropy and volunteerism in upgrading BoP players.

      The conference will provide a forum for a truly global discussion of ideas, research, and showcasing projects and interventions that can help advance more inclusive businesses in practice and in management education, as well as achieving responsible business eco-systems.

      Save the Date – 6th PRME Asia Forum

      We are pleased to announce the 6th PRME Asia Forum India, which will take place in Goa Institute of Management (GIM), Goa, India on 27th, and 28th November 2015. The theme of the Forum is “Integrating Responsible Management.” It will be preceded by a workshop on Teaching Responsible Management on 26th November 2015.

      Over the past few decades, economic growth in Asia has resulted in profit & wealth-accumulation for business, often at the cost of the environment & the poor. This could compromise the region’s stability and the ability of the future generations to meet their needs. At risk is the region’s long-term economic growth.

      In this context, Asian businesses need to become more socially responsible. Every business enterprise must be responsible to the quality of lives of the people around it. According to the ISO 26000 guidelines, social responsibility is the willingness of firms to incorporate social and environmental considerations into their decision-making and to be accountable for the impact of their business decisions/ activities on society & the environment[1].

      The focus of the 6th PRME Asia Forum would be as follows:

      • Share what Business enterprises and Business Schools are doing to integrate social responsibility into their strategies, what challenges they experienced in implementation and what outcomes followed.  
      • Reflect on the role of business enterprises and Business Schools in advancing Responsible Management Education and implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),
      • Motivate administrators and teachers across Business Schools to integrate social responsibility into their thought and action;
      • Assist teachers in teaching social responsibility;
      • Promote networks among B-Schools and between Business enterprises & B-Schools to implement responsibility-enhancing projects jointly
      • further discuss the next steps and activities for the PRME Chapters in Asia (PRME Chapter ASEAN +, PRME Chapter South Asia and PRME Chapter East Asia

      For more information, please visit www.gim.ac.in/prme where you will find a copy of the agenda. Please address queries about the Forum to gimprme@gim.ac.in. The registration for the Forum and the workshop will begin soon.

      We look forward to seeing you at Goa, India in November 2015.
