Undoubtedly, sustainability and socially responsible development – addressing economic, social, and environmental challenges simultaneously and interdependently – are increasingly important issues in global research, and sustainability science has emerged as a critical tool in advancing knowledge and increasing the realization of a sustainable society. Although much has been written on the subject, there are still white spaces that need to be filled with groundbreaking research. Therefore, we would like to encourage a cross-cutting and interdisciplinary discussion of the challenges and conditions for sustainable and socially responsible development (individual, group, organization, region, economy, world, etc.) in the network of socio-economic relations. Conceptual, methodological, and research papers using quantitative, qualitative, or mixed approaches are welcome. Since sustainability issues are context-dependent, submitted papers should make a significant contribution to understanding the role of networks of socio-economic relations in the context of:
- sustainable tourism,
- sustainable or resilient business/organization,
- sustainable value chains/logistics,
- sustainable cities and societies,
- education for sustainability/sustainability and sustainable HRM,
- circular/sustainable economy.
We also invite papers that would develop indicators and measures of sustainable and socially responsible action in the network of socio-economic relations in various contexts, as well as other closely related topics. The focus on the network of socioeconomic relations in this conference stems from the fact that sustainable and socially responsible development is also socially mediated and requires cooperation among different stakeholder groups, as well as an effective governance system.
