EIASM engagement in Sustainability for Management Doctoral Education

UN World Commission on Environment and Development states that sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Environmental protection, economic stability, and social responsibility are recognised as the fundamental principles of sustainable development. It involves creating a sustainable society that is equitable and just for all individuals.

Sustainability theory and practice cover a wide range of knowledge areas, from population, ecosystems, global change, energy, to environmental economics and policy, ethics, consumer behaviour and more. It is multidisciplinary in nature and covers the various research and their impact on society.

We, at EIASM, are working to advance understanding in this complex and evolving field of sustainability field that requires collaboration across disciplines and sectors to achieve a more sustainable future.

EIASM is committed to addressing this challenge through its various initiatives and by offering doctoral seminars and conferences & workshops in this interdisciplinary field.

Regarding doctoral education, EIASM is pleased to announce its new portfolio ‘Sustainability in Management Doctoral Education’.

  • EDEN Doctoral Seminar on Responsible Organising:  New Perspectives on Social Inequalities - An EIASM - KATAJA Collaboration  

At the core of Responsible Organising (RO) is research on how different actors are organising for transformative action towards sustainability, as expressed in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Common for RO research is a rejection of the idea that moral concerns and business decisions are something separate. Instead, within RO ethics/morality and business as inseparable, intertwined, and interconnected. Simultaneously it recognizes the complexity, multifacetedness, and intersectionality of societal inequalities. The seminar gives an in-depth overview of the current state and contribution of Responsible Organising research on the key inequality challenges that faces humankind.
