Abstract

What role should business take in addressing the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals? How can business and management research take on a more normative and societal focus, yet still be published in the very top journal of our field? These questions will feature alongside many others with a societal focus in the seminar series on grand challenges in management and organizations.

Therefore we have invited leading researchers from business schools around the world who connect grand challenges to mainstream management and organizational theory and manage to publish their work in the leading journals of our field (AMJ, AMR, etc.). Each of the invited speakers will deliver a seminar and in addition to this will offer a short informal workshop as well (which will be announced later).

He received training in mediation and negotiation at Harvard Law School, is part of the University mediation team, and holds advanced degrees in management and economics, photojournalism and documentary photography. His research has featured widely in the press, including in The Economist, TIME magazine, The Financial Times, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Week, Der Spiegel, Forbes, The Huffington PostThe Los Angeles Times, The Evening StandardThe Wall Street Journal, and on the BBC.
