An International Conference to be held at Anadolu University, Turkey 30 – 31 May 2013
The purpose of the conference, sponsored by Anadolu University in collaboration with the journal Social Business, is to bring together academics, policy makers and practitioners to explore these different interpretations with a view to achieving their shared objective of improving human welfare and the quality of life. Informed by Keynote addresses on the nature of social business, transformational marketing, sustainability, and capitalism and the market economy, the conference seeks to attract contributions that will explain and clarify the many different approaches being taken and proposed, as well as documenting implementation and outcomes through case studies and other empirical evidence. Accordingly, the Conference aims to show case current thinking and research with a view to developing a research agenda for the future. All papers will be required to show how they contribute to the overall aim of social business ?the elimination of poverty and enhancement of human welfare ? and may be either conceptually based, where the researcher(s) identify an issue and seek to clarify it through the implementation of a study designed specifically for the purpose, or Action?based research that describes and diagnoses problems or issues associated with the major themes cited earlier, the actions taken to address them and the resulting outcomes.
