Special issue of the Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal Sustainable decision making in a time of crisis: public and private perspectives
Article Type: Call for contributions From: Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal, Volume 1, Issue 1
Guest Editors: Professor Malcolm McIntosh, Asia Pacific Centre for Sustainable Enterprise, Griffith University; Dr Vesselin Popovski, UN University, Tokyo, Japan; and Professor Yasunobu Sato, Tokyo University
The special issue reflects lessons learnt and being learned from the global financial crisis, from the climate change prognosis and from rethinking global governance, 2010 is also the tenth anniversary of the UN Global Compact, the UN Year of Biodiversity, and the conference will be held immediately prior to the Asia Pacific Economic Community 2010 Summit (10-11 November in Yokohama, Japan). Given the birth of the G20 group of nations, the inexorable diffusion of economic power to the Asia-Pacific region, and the rise of new organisational forms and business models, the special issue is particularly timely and relevant. The special issue will consider: “how and to what extent does decision making differ between the public and private arenas?” Further, “given the imperative for new global governance how can private and public decision-making work together for the common good?”
Submissions which reflect open dialogue and learning between business, academics, experts on business planning and public sector policy, civil society and the media are encouraged. The special issue will consider external and internal factors involved in decision making, exploring the balance between long and short-term goals and pressing needs in times of crisis. Topics of particular focus will include the immediacy of climate change, sustainability, emerging low carbon sustainable enterprise economy agenda, and peacebuilding as a sustainability approach to peace.
This special issue is linked with the theme of the 2010 APABIS Annual Conference, organized by the United Nations University’s Institute for Sustainability and Peace and the Asia Pacific Academy of Business in Society. The conference will be held on 4-5 November 2010, at the United Nations University headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. The call is for papers addressing this theme – they do not need to be submitted to the conference.
Submissions of research papers should be made to Professor Malcolm McIntosh at: firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 October 2010. Submissions of news section articles should be made to: email@example.com by 15 January 2011.
