Long-term financial success in business is not possible without an enterprise-wide strategic focus on shared prosperity for business and society. While this perspective is not pervasive throughout the business literatures, research in this domain is growing and there is an increasing body of work examining the rationale for businesses to proactively respond to violent conflict in countries where they operate and to engage in peace building efforts that not only benefit firms but also the communities in which they operate.
This book brings together issues related to business, economics and peace building, still a relatively nascent field especially in the business and management research. Readers interested in how to create the partnerships required for a multi-sector approach to peacebuilding will find the book useful reading.
