Opportunity to contribute to a new global book project on:
Citizenship and Sustainability in Organizations
The new book series entitled 'Citizenship and Sustainability in Organizations' publishes excellent, innovative and critical scholarship in the fields of citizenship, social responsibility, sustainability, innovation, and place leadership in diverse organizational contexts. These contexts include commercial businesses, social enterprises, public service organizations, international organizations, faith-based organizations (FBOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community groups, hybrids and cross-sector partnerships. The role of the individual as citizen may also be explored in relation to one or more of these contexts, as could formal or informal networks, clusters and organizational ecosystems.
For the new book series, we will be commissioning editors and authors to contribute edited volumes, handbooks and monographs. Further details about the different book types that are acceptable within the series and proposal guidelines can be found here.
Book proposals should propose core themes and emerging areas of research and thought leadership.
The Series Editors, Dr David Murphy and Professor Alison Marshall (Institute for Leadership and Sustainability, University of Cumbria, Ambleside, UK), are currently accepting new book proposals. We are particularly interested in topics that integrate theory about citizenship and sustainability with leadership, management and collaboration in practice. 'Citizenship and Sustainability in Organizations' aims to publish the best ideas integrating a wide range of theory and practice under the broad umbrella of citizenship and sustainability in a format that is readable, accessible, engaging, interesting and useful for readers in academia, business, consultancy, government, the UN system, NGOs, community groups and related networks.
