Posted for CBS Sustainability

Dear all,

Register for the new PhD Course , Perspectives on governance and sustainable development , that will be held on 20 – 24 September 2021 at Copenhagen Business School.

Course coordinators

  • Jeremy Moon, Professor of Sustainability Governance, Department of Management, Society & Communication, CBS (JM)
  • Stefano Ponte, Professor International Political Economy, Department of Management, Society & Communication, CBS (SP)

Aim

The aim is to strengthen the understanding, knowledge and analytical capacity of PhD students working in the broad field of governance and sustainable development.

Content

The course provides research students with an in-depth overview of relevant frameworks, concepts and approaches to the topic of governance and sustainable development. It draws on the strengths of the CBS Sustainability Centre and the CBS Centre for Business and Development Studies. But it will also bring in guest faculty from CBS and beyond.

The course opens with discussion of key evaluative concepts for assessing systems designed to address sustainable development. The course proceeds by distinguishing and focusing on issues & paradigms and actors in the governance, and by examining the role of business in the governance of sustainable development, in particular. It will consider new governance institutions (e.g. the Sustainable Development Goals, Cross Sector Partnerships, Multi-Stakeholder Institutions) and approaches (e.g. sustainable supply chains; accounting for sustainability; the circular economy, sustainable finance). The course will enable critical consideration of different theoretical and policy approaches to the governance of sustainable development.

There will be an opportunity for students to present their own perspectives and to reflect on what they have learned in the course. There will be an extra-curricular event on education for sustainability.
