Critical perspectives on international business (cpoib) is hosting a Zoominar, devoted to acceleration of research on the contemporary crisis on Friday April 03, 2020 11:30-12:30- NZDT. This initiative by the cpoib editorial team aims at supporting the cpoib scholarly community in making sense of the insecurity and hyper-turbulence of the external environment which we are currently facing due to the covid-19 pandemic. Scholarship in recent years has of course been facilitated by digital technologies and thus, the higher-education sector in particular has some affinity to the notion of working in isolation. However, the worldwide lockdowns of large parts of communities gives an unprecedented sense of how essential and non-essential services are actually defined, how supply-chain disruptions may challenge our sense of security and how interlocked health-systems, political systems and economic systems actually are.


The zoom-enabled research acceleration session on the contemporary crisis aims to improve outreach to all parts of the cpoib community with the following goals:

Organisation and projected outcomes

The session will feature a panel of cpoib editors who will open up by briefly introducing the specific goals and objectives of cpoib and move on to an open discussion about how we might address some of the contemporary issues through joint scholarship.


The overall purpose of these sessions is to help scholars and doctoral students to develop a sense of community in doing something meaningful while aiming to publish quality research papers that have potential impact in policy and governance circles.
