Also to be addressed in this volume are management educations responses to these challenges.


Book 2 will be collection of innovative teaching and program/module ideas to help faculty integrate the topic of poverty into their own teaching and gain support for the legitimacy of poverty as an important management education topic in their institutions.  A more detailed call for papers for Book 2 will be disseminated in October 2013.
