Call for papers - Business & Society Special Issue
The special issue revolves around three fundamental and relevant areas of concern in relation to the SME-CSR literature. First, the special issue welcomes submissions that are concerned with the question of how specific international, regional, national or local institutional contexts affect the way in which CSR is institutionalized within SMEs in developing country settings.
Second, the special issue seeks contributions that dig deeper and revisit the core of the debate on SMEs and CSR in developing countries by posing the more fundamental question of whether and how SMEs ought to engage in CSR? Contributions to the special issue may touch upon the applicability, relevance, and implementation gaps that exist in relation to how SMEs engage in CSR in developing countries.
Finally, the special issue invites contributions on a range of new or hot topics that have surfaced as relevant in recent years and are certainly salient and worth examining to advance the debate on CSR in SMEs in developing countries to the next level.
Questions related to the special issue should be addressed to the guest editors who can be reached on the e-mails below. Authors are invited to submit a full paper to Dima Jamali (firstname.lastname@example.org), Peter Lund-Thomsen (email@example.com), or Søren Jeppesen (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 1 November 2012.
