The Workshop will explore different perspectives on global value chains and the evolving relationship between business and sustainable global development, namely: aspects of corporate social responsibility (CSR), innovation, global value chains, foreign direct investment, social entrepreneurship, microfinance, as well as BoP (bottom-of-the-pyramid) markets and the role of business as a poverty reduction stakeholder.
The workshop is a part of the Spring 2020 Workshops, convened by the Business and Development Study Group of the Development Studies Association (DSA) UK, and the Margaret Anstee Center for Global Studies, at Cambridge University; and, occurs in the scope of the Business4SDGs Project hosted by CEsA – Center for African and Development Studies (ISEG-Lisbon School of Economics and Management, Universidade de Lisboa).
The workshops will provide a participatory forum about the future research outcomes on these topics. All participants are welcome to join the workshop discussion based on their research interests in this field with a view to supporting future networking, collaboration and support.
This workshop will be led by Roberta Rabbellotti, Hugo Confraria and Farwa Sial, with moderation by Luís Bernardo.
This workshop is also the endpoint of the project that is co-funded by Camões, Instituto da Cooperação e da Língua and Foundation Calouste Gulbenkian.
