1st International Conference on Social and Environmental Accountability (ICSEA) 2014 Colombo

  • Conference Call
  • Map­ping the ter­ri­tory for CSR

    The first Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Social and Envi­ron­men­tal Account­abil­ity (ICSEA) is orga­nized with the inten­tion of defin­ing CSR’s ter­ri­tory and scope as there is no exact def­i­n­i­tion or scope avail­able to iden­tify and develop CSR activ­i­ties fur­ther to enhance per­for­mance of busi­nesses. The event will take place in Colombo, Sri Lanka at the Gal­adari Hotel on Novem­ber 4 – 5, 2014.

    In 1970, the econ­o­mist and Nobel lau­re­ate Mil­ton Fried­man pub­lished an arti­cle in The New York Times Mag­a­zine titled “The Social respon­si­bil­ity of busi­ness is to increase its prof­its”. In the arti­cle, he referred to Cor­po­rate Social Respon­si­bil­ity pro­grams as “hyp­o­crit­i­cal win­dow dressing”.

    How­ever over the past decade this per­spec­tive had been changed dra­mat­i­cally. As an instance more than 8000 busi­nesses around the world have signed UN Global com­pact pledg­ing to show good global cit­i­zen­ship in the areas of human rights, labor stan­dards and envi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion. Nev­er­the­less Gov­ern­ment, Cus­tomers, Employ­ees in a nut­shell Gen­eral Pub­lic is push­ing busi­ness orga­ni­za­tions to be a respon­si­ble cor­po­rate citizen.

    The main objec­tive of the con­fer­ence is to open­ing plat­form for a local and Inter­na­tional researchers, schol­ars and experts and prac­ti­tion­ers to dis­cuss and debate on this spe­cific and impor­tant research area and ulti­mately dis­cus­sion will mark new ter­ri­tory for CSR. Hope­fully this asso­ci­a­tion will trig­ger some new insights and ideas in these areas of research. We are look­ing for­ward to excel­lent con­tri­bu­tions and pre­sen­ta­tions. Sec­ondly con­fer­ence will be pro­vid­ing oppor­tu­nity to net­work with each other and share their knowl­edge by set­ting up series of activ­i­ties includ­ing cul­tural show, net­work­ing din­ner, post con­fer­ence tour, dis­cus­sions and one to one meetings.

    Orga­niz­ing com­mit­tee of the 1st Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Cor­po­rate Social Respon­si­bil­ity 2014 invites Researchers, Schol­ars, edu­ca­tors and indus­try lead­ers around the world to sub­mit their full papers, work­ing papers or abstract to take part of this conference.
