    Durham University Business School, the Centre for Organisations and Society (COS), and the Doctoral Society are delighted to announce that the International Doctoral Consortium (IDC) will be held in person this year in Durham, United Kingdom, on the 4th - 5th June 2024.

    While main plans are for the event to be in person, there may be a virtual stream added with online presentations and hybrid access to some workshops depending on interest (there is space to indicate preference on the submission form).

    The consortium is an excellent forum for PhD students at all stages to exchange ideas, experiences and research results in a friendly and supportive environment. The IDC provides a platform for dialogue between researchers and PhD students to expose their different projects and perspectives in critical management studies. The consortium is generally critical, broadly qualitative, highly developmental, but also supportive and intimate for attendees.

    Conference attendance is free of charge and some financial support for accommodation is available.

    The full call is attached and more information on the event is available here: International Doctoral Consortium - Durham University Business School

    The deadline for submissions is 15th April 2024. To submit, please complete the form and attach your 500-word abstract at this website: https://urlr.me/!-IDC24

    Following previous successful years, the consortium will be returning this year with the theme of 'Grand Challenges'. Some potential topic ideas within this could be:

    • The future of work
    • Leadership
    • Employee health and wellbeing
    • Investing in human capital for a sustainable global economy
    • Gender and women's work
    • The changing impact of technology
    • Corporate social responsibility and global stability
    • Sustainable marketing strategies
    • Sustainability in global supply chain management
    • Environmental responsibility of organisations
    • The role of (social) entrepreneurs in uncertain times
    • Initiatives for sustainability in emerging economies
    • Foreign direct investment and its impact on sustainability
    • Development of new methodologies

    Submissions are not restricted to these areas though, all are welcome, and can be either conceptual or empirical papers.

    The city of Durham also has many beautiful places to visit while you are here, such as Durham Cathedral (filming location for various documentaries and blockbuster films) and Botanic Gardens. More information about the city and surrounding areas can be found here: https://www.thisisdurham.com/
