Re-inventing Globalization: Community, Virtues, and the Power of Purpose
We cordially invite you to (re-)submit proposals for the 7th ISBEE World Congress in Bilbao, Spain, to participate in the discourse on how we may re-invent globalization, the role of local communities, virtues and values, and the power of purpose. The 7th World Congress, initially planned for 2020, will now take place on site and in person in Bilbao from July 20-22, 2022.
The world is in a paradoxical state: cumulative global wealth is at an all-time high, unemployment in many advanced economies at an all-time low, and yet, dissatisfaction with the outcomes of global capitalism is growing, especially within younger generations. Moreover, trust in business leaders and elites in most large economies is at an all-time low, triggered by self-serving behaviour of leaders and prominent business scandals, putting at risk the legitimacy of economic actors and their social license to operate.
