2nd Studies of Society and Business Symposium

March 6th 2017 – ISTEC Paris, JE3

The Studies of Society and Business Symposium is a yearly event organized by and for the community evolving around the Society and Business Review. It aims at creating an open space for expression, exchange and collaboration, in order to stimulate academic research and publication in the field of Business & Society. Indeed, the symposium format encourages conversation and (respectful) arguments, rather than presenting finished papers. It is the opportunity to build a community of scholars who feel aligned with the scope and editorial line of the journal, or wish to participate in debates and conversations concerning its areas of interest. It is also an occasion for authors to have their work reviewed and discussed by the SBR editorial team.
