New Content ItemRob van Tulder

RSM Erasmus University, The Netherlands

Editorial Area: Global Goals/Challenges; International Business and International Governance; Multi-stakeholder Collaboration Processes

Area Scope: Studies examining the multidimensional aspects of business management, stressing sustainability issues and the contribution of companies to either solving or creating societal problems. The approach to these challenges at the moment in particular includes cooperation between different actors: governments, corporations, civil society organizations. They are aimed ‘grand societal challenges’ like the Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) in which the participation of Multinationals is applauded or criticized. I am looking forward to a more balanced account of these activities as well as studies that critically look at the societal ‘impact’ of these activities. Moreover, studies applying action research related methodologies are welcome.
