7th ABRM International Trade and Academic Research Conference (ITARC) 2016 London

  • Conference Call
  • This con­fer­ence orga­nized by ABRM seeks elu­ci­date a wealth of issues in all aspects of busi­ness man­age­ment, health and social care sci­ences, man­age­ment edu­ca­tion, teach­ing and learn­ing method­olo­gies and many more. Con­tri­bu­tions should there­fore be of inter­est to schol­ars, prac­ti­tion­ers and researchers in man­age­ment in both devel­oped and devel­op­ing coun­tries tar­get­ing a world­wide read­er­ship. We are par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in thought pro­vok­ing research which cap­ture and artic­u­late the ways in which man­age­ment think­ing will have to be changed or cus­tomized to be effec­tive and effi­cient in this new environment.

    We believe that 2016 7th ABRM Inter­na­tional Trade & Aca­d­e­mic Research Con­fer­ence (ITARC) shall pro­vide you oppor­tu­ni­ties to dis­sem­i­nate your research, learn from other researchers and net­work with other like-​minded schol­ars. The con­fer­ence will take place on Novem­ber 78, 2016 in Lon­don, UK at the Hol­i­day Inn, Regent’s Park.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    The dynam­ics of inter­na­tional trade have taken on an added sig­nif­i­cance in the light of the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of the 2008 global finan­cial cri­sis. Entire sec­tors and even nations have begun to reassess their trad­ing rela­tion­ships and the more enlight­ened are eager to gain an insight into the the­o­ries and processes that have helped cer­tain economies to weather the storm.

    The emerg­ing giants of Brazil, China and India are demand­ing greater atten­tion and ensur­ing that prac­ti­tion­ers and aca­d­e­mics alike invest more time and resources in under­stand­ing where their economies are at and how they will shape future of rela­tion­ships. As if proof were needed of this, one of the most sig­nif­i­cant events of 2014 was when the Export Credit Guar­an­tee Cor­po­ra­tion of India Ltd (ECGC) signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Under­stand­ing (MOU) on Co-​operation with BRICS coun­tries Export Credit Insur­ance Agen­cies (ECA) in the pres­ence of Heads of Gov­ern­ments from BRICS Sum­mit in For­t­aleza, Brazil.

    The five export credit agen­cies of BRICS coun­tries namely the ABGF (Brazil­ian Fund and Guar­an­tee Man­age­ment Agency), EXIAR (Export Insur­ance Agency of Rus­sia), ECGC (Export Credit Guar­an­tee Cor­po­ra­tion of India Ltd), SINOSURE (China Export & Credit Insur­ance Cor­po­ra­tion) and ECIC (Export Credit Insur­ance Cor­po­ra­tion of South Africa Ltd) are all state owned agen­cies and Mem­bers of the Asso­ci­a­tion of Inter­na­tional Union of Credit & Invest­ment Insur­ers which is also known as the Berne Union and the Prague Club.

    Whilst the rate of glob­al­i­sa­tion appears to con­tinue apace, there is a grow­ing real­i­sa­tion that some­where along the line there is a price to pay. Geo-​political uncer­tain­ties cou­pled with tech­no­log­i­cal change have trans­formed the trad­ing land­scape to such a degree that for all the appar­ent lib­er­al­i­sa­tion there is increased evi­dence of the con­struc­tion of trad­ing blocks, some of which appear intent on fos­ter­ing a ‘new protectionism’.

    This aca­d­e­mic con­fer­ence is intended to con­tribute to the emerg­ing the­o­ret­i­cal under­stand­ing and empir­i­cal base and to fur­ther advance the under­stand­ing and prac­tice of busi­ness espe­cially inter­na­tional trade & man­age­ment. We wel­come empir­i­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal papers which advance our knowl­edge of these impor­tant areas. ITARC will be the plat­form for dis­sem­i­na­tion of knowl­edge, pro­vide a learned ref­er­ence in the field and facil­i­tate com­mu­ni­ca­tion between aca­d­e­mic, research experts, busi­ness lead­ers and prac­ti­tion­ers. The fol­low­ing list is indica­tive of the types of con­tri­bu­tions which may be appro­pri­ate. How­ever, it is not intended to be exhaus­tive and rather is illustrative.
