We invite you to submit your papers to the special issue “Sustainable International Management - Research in Global Culture and Leadership Development”. The journal name is “Sustainability”. The submission deadline is August 15, 2022.
Organizations are giving an increasing attention to corporate sustainability, due to the regulative requests, expectation of stakeholders and the greater community, environmental pressure and the benefits of achieving firms’ performance. With the intensification of globalization, sustainability remains no longer an issue inside the organization, but becomes a collective concern with its overseas suppliers and customers. As a multidimensional construct, it is worth investigating sustainability from different perspectives in this global cultural context Prior studies have investigated sustainability from culture, human resource management, boardroom nationality, boardroom gender diversity, corporate identity, organizational capabilities, measurements to corporate sustainability performance, challenges in achieving sustainability, and so forth.
The goal of the Special Issue is to expand existing literature on these themes, by offering new insights and future perspectives on how informal institutions (e.g. changing cultural values and cultural practices) and formal institutions (e.g. regulations, norms) may interplay together and affect corporate sustainability performance, what is the role of leadership in shaping corporate sustainability policies and practices.
We invite both conceptual and empirical research on the above themes. We are particularly interested in research combining multiple theoretical backgrounds and methodological approaches, as well as literature review or theory papers. Examples of relevant topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited, to the following:
Keywords: culture, corporate sustainability, go-global enterprises, implications, institutionalization, leadership, multinational entreprises, performance
