Join Professor Alexander Betts and the lead-guest editors of three forthcoming special issues on migration and business as they discuss where we currently stand and where we should be heading.

As geopolitical crises unfold and the world turns its attention to the movement of people across borders, management scholars endeavouring to inform business and policy must open new lines of inquiry if they are to maximize impact.

In this webinar, Alexander Betts, Professor of Forced Migration and International Affairs at the University of Oxford, and the lead-guest editors of three forthcoming special issues on migration and business Prithwiraj (Raj) Choudhury (Harvard University), Stacey Fitzsimmons (University of Victoria), and Betina Szkudlarek (University of Sydney) will discuss where we currently stand and where we should be heading. Peter Buckley, Distinguished Professor of International Business at the University of Leeds, will join the conversation and share his views on how the multitude of skills and experiences that business scholars bring on board could be leveraged for positive change.

This event is co-hosted by Migration, Business & Society and the Centre for International Business at the University of Leeds (CIBUL).

The event will take place on Zoom.
