The conference is a great opportunity to network with others working in the CSR comms field.

We are delighted to be hosting the 2024 CSR Communication Conference here at the School of Management, focusing on the theme of ‘CSR communication for a world in crisis’.

Still recovering from the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are facing a harsh new reality of a rapidly warming globe, escalating social inequalities, ongoing socio-political conflict, and looming economic crises.

Many organisations are stepping up to raise awareness of – and challenge – these issues under the guise of corporate social responsibility. Others may be (inadvertently) exacerbating them.

We seek to bring together new conceptual and empirical research that builds upon insight at the intersection of CSR and communication and explores the role of CSR communication in these various crises, including:

  • Grand challenges and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Climate change and activism in and around organisations
  • Social injustice and marginalisation
  • Conflict, war and political instability
  • Artificial intelligence and surveillance
  • Futurism and post-human interactions
  • Post-truth and denial

This biennial event discusses concepts, theories, and methodological and managerial approaches to corporate social responsibility and sustainability strategies, management and communication.

It provides a wonderful opportunity for academics and professionals to network, discuss, debate and exchange ideas and viewpoints on CSR challenges and opportunities.

  • Early bird registration deadline: Saturday 15 June 2024
  • Registration deadline: Monday 5 August 2024
