You are cordially invited to join our first HUMAC workshop. The workshop consists of several parts. Please feel free to participate each and any parts of the programme.

13:00-14:15 Roundtable on publishing interdisciplinary work on business and humanitarianism
The roundtable will explore the publishing landscape for social science and humanities research on business and humanitarianism. In addition to the opportunities that exist for publishing on this contemporary theme, we will explore the hurdles involved and ways to overcome them both pre-submission and during the publication process.
Panelists include Lea Stadtler (business and society research), Andreas Rasche (business ethics), and Lisa Ann Richey (humanitarian studies). Participants are invited to share their own questions and experiences.

14:30-15:30 Keynote by Lea Stadtler (Grenoble Ecole de Management)
Between Intensity and Diversity: Leveraging the Role of Place in Cross-Sector Partnerships
In her keynote, Lea will introduce insights from a recent paper (co-authored with Luk Van Wassenhove, INSEAD) in which they investigate how companies cope with difficult ‘place’ characteristics encountered in humanitarian partnerships. Based on an in-depth case study of a disaster relief cross-sector partnership (CSP), this research outlines places’ agentic forces and exposes their different collaborative effects. Additionally, by introducing practices of cognitive and emotional CSP place work, this research shows how partners may integrate places into their CSP management to better handle their adverse effects. Lea will close the keynote by outlining more general themes and questions that shape the business-humanitarian interface, as well as related avenues for future research.

15:30‑16:30 The workshop will be followed by a reception and poster presentations in the CBS Sustainability Centre lounge.

CBS HUMAC is a research project on private-sector involvement in humanitarian action financed by Velux Fonden. You can read more about the project here:
