Call for Papers – UN PRI Academic Network Conference 2022
We are happy to share with you the Call for Papers for the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Academic Network Conference 2022 .

PRI, a United Nations-supported initiative, aims to understand the investment implications of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.

The PRI Academic Network is a vibrant and flourishing international community of over 11,000 academics and investment practitioners on ESG and investment. It comprises academics from various disciplines, spanning accounting, economics, finance, law, management, political science, sociology, and other subjects in the social and natural sciences.

The conference focuses on the latest research on responsible investment practices and as such it serves as an opportunity for academics and investors to engage with each other, learn and discuss the latest insights, and to network.

As in previous years, we will hold the PRI Academic Network Conference in 2022. Given the current global pandemic, we allow for some flexibility in the planning of the conference:

  1. Health situation permitting: the PRI Academic Network Conference will be held in person on 20 – 21 September 2022 in Barcelona (alongside PRI in Person – the largest global conference on responsible investment)
  2. If the health situation does not permit traveling and group gatherings: the conference will be converted into a 5-day virtual event during 19 - 23 September 2022 (following last year’s successful format).

Please find further details in the Call for Papers. We encourage you to submit your work, and look forward to receiving your submission by May 1, 2022 .

Take care,
The PRI Academic Network Conference Committee 2022
