Hybrid Organisations: walking at the edge between economic performance and social & environmental impact

The 1st IESE-LUISS Conference on Responsibility, Sustainability and Social Entrepreneurship
18-19 April 2017, Rome Italy
http://www.iese.edu/luiss-conference 

This conference, possibly the first of a series, is aimed at gathering scholars from different literature streams interested in highlighting the mechanisms through which hybridity is created and sustained. To give more substance to the debate we asked key scholars in the field –among them Johanna MairAnne Claire PacheGuido PalazzoTommaso Ramus and Ute Stephan, who already accepted our invitation- to join us and present their work. To give more visibility to the research discussed at the conference, we proposed to the Journal of Business Ethics, one of the leading journals in the field, to create a Thematic Symposium on these themes linked to the conference.

This call for papers aims at generating a conference exploring how organisational hybridity is created and sustained, with particular reference to social enterprises. 

Call for papers! 
Submission deadline [EXTENDED]: 20/01/2017
