49th AIB UK & Ireland Chapter Conference 2023

International Business and SDG 8 – Are we on course?

13-15 April 2023
Boyd Orr Building and Wolfson Medical School Building, University of Glasgow

The Adam Smith Business School is delighted to host the 49th AIB UK & Ireland Chapter Conference and pre-conference, running from Thursday 13th - Saturday 15th of April 2023.

The UKI Chapter of the Academy of International Business (AIB) is the leading association of scholars and specialists in the field of international business in the UK and Ireland. It edits the Palgrave MacMillan book series and organises an annual conference aimed at academics and PhD students. In the 49th AIB UK & Ireland Chapter Conference we will provide a scholarly platform to interrogate the complex relationship between international business (IB) and society, in particular around SDG 8. In tradition with previous chapter conferences, we invite general IB papers and contributions which speak to the specific conference theme. Topics include technological upgrading and innovation, the formalisation and growth of micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises, the decoupling of economic growth from environmental degradation as well as from the exploitation of workers and employees including women, children, migrants, persons with disabilities and other minorities. We also invite work on technological advancements in digitalisation, automation, and robotics, specifically when connected to their enabling function for attainment of larger degrees of inclusiveness on the individual, firm and regional levels. IB topics which connect IB actors with effort of policy makers, non-governmental organisations, and other non-firm actors, are also very welcome.

Registration is now open. Visit Eventbrite to register now.
