Social Responsibility Journal

Social Responsibility in a Changing Era Mauritius, 7 – 10 September 2022

For our 20th conference we will travel to the idyllic island of Mauritius where our hosts will be the Université des Mascareignes. The conference will be organized jointly by the Université des Mascareignes and the Social Responsibility Research Network. After the disruptions of the past couple of years we are looking forward to this event and to joining with you in Mauritius.

Call for Papers

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused serious effects throughout the corporate world and there has been a need to adjust and adapt. There has equally been a need to rethink the ideas of corporate social responsibility. Additionally, governments and society have changed and needed to adapt. The effects are still playing out in the world of CSR. It is important that we recognise these changes and adapt – sharing best practice from around the world and we seek to recover.

We are in an era of change, and this can be expected to change. This is pertinent as we seek to recover as the World Health Organisation has already warned that future pandemics are inevitable so we must prepare to face them, hopefully in a better way than we have managed with Covid-19. At the same time the United Nations has warned that, while the pandemic and effects might be serious, there is a far more serious crisis facing the world and that is climate change. So, we need to recognize the present and future crises and adapt. We need also to focus upon the longer term objective of ensuring sustainability. Accordingly we have set the theme for this conference as focusing upon social responsibility in the changing era.

This conference is designed to act as a forum for the debate and analysis of contemporary issues in this broad area. It is intended to attract people from a wide variety of disciplines and geographic regions for an exchange of views.
