SnO Summer School: Medici III Edition on Beyond Performance: Business Sustainability in question

  • When: 05/06/2011 - 10/06/2011

In 2011, the theme of the Summer School was developed in liaison with the GDF-Suez Chair on Business and Sustainability: “Beyond performance: sustainability in question”. 26 doctoral students from European and US universities (among others Duke, Erasmus, IESE, Imperial College, NYU, HEC, North-western, Politecnico Milano, Oxford, University of Zurich, Warwick) participated to the School. The “journey” began with a cognitive approach, moved to discussions on the change in paradigm due to CSR concerns, then to institutional pressures linked to CSR, to strategizing about CSR and eventually to social movements. Common issues raised all through the week were concerns about the lack of a clear definition of the concept of sustainability, the difficulty forresearchers to publish papers on CSR in academic journals, the predominance of the economic paradigm that sees firms as rational profit-seekers.
