We welcome submissions to this special issue. Topics covered include (but are not limited to):
•    Are existing theories in IB able to support a better understanding of the SDGs including the process of their implementation and evaluation? If not, how can we extend or modify these theories? Do we need new theories?
•    How can SDGs be addressed at different units of analysis (individual, firm, sector, nation state, the supranational level)?
•    How can the tensions between climate change and development be mitigated? Can local or regional solutions be scaled up nationally and internationally?
•    How can the SDGs help achieve more meaningful social and environmental upgrading in GVCs? Should MNEs be the main driving force?
•    What are the limitations of current SDG projects? How can they be addressed? Do MNEs foster or hinder the design of more effective interventions?
•    How can multi-stakeholder SDG collaborations be made more effective? Where are the tensions?
•    What are the challenges of transforming existing business models into models that embrace the SDGs?
•    What are the challenges of designing and implementing cross-border solutions to SDGs?
