The CSR research seminar is a great opportunity for doctoral students and young researchers to present and discuss their research project.

The event will include paper/research project presentation and a publishing workshop. Selected participants will be asked to submit a long abstract or a PhD research project prior to the CSR research seminar. The papers will be circulated among the participants to contribute to an enriching discussion.
The general theme of the research seminar is Corporate Social Responsibility. We aim at bringing together scholars from various disciplines and fields, including but not limited to management, law, sociology, philosophy, economics, political science, and social psychology, but sharing a common interest for CSR and business & society issues, in order to explore the diverse dimensions of these questions. A special attention will also be given to research project that involve strong linkages with industry participants. It may include methods such as ethnography, observation-participation, or other methodologies that require intense relationship with companies although all PhD topics and approaches are welcome. The seminar will be a two-day workshop.
