The CRR Conference is the longest running academic conference on Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability. The inaugural conference was held in Belfast, and so, the Centre for Leadership, Ethics and Organisation (CLEO) at Queen’s Management School, Belfast, is delighted to host the 18th edition of the conference (fully in-person) back in Belfast in September 2022. In association with ESCP Business School, Kedge Business School, and the Sustainability Research Institute at the University of Leeds, the conference promises to be a lively and relaxed environment within which to discuss, debate and reflect on ‘Where now for corporate responsibility research?’
We would be delighted if you were able to develop and share your ideas (both fully-fledged ideas and those that are more embryonic) and discuss your research findings, in the beautiful surroundings of Riddel Hall. We can’t promise you sunshine, but we can promise you a very warm welcome and many opportunities to network and engage with other researchers.

Where now for Corporate Responsibility Research?
The theme of the conference reflects the significant changes that business, government and society have been experiencing over the last number of years. Global concerns such as climate change, the recent experiences of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, the power and potential of artificial intelligence, social justice and human rights continue to keep the leadership and behaviours of the public, private and third sectors in the spotlight. These concerns are reflected in the significant and growing body of research in corporate responsibility and sustainability with many powerful observations being made. The conference gives us an opportunity to reflect on what we know, to discuss our current research findings, both theoretical and empirical, and to explore where corporate responsibility research might lead us in the next 5-10 years.
We welcome both theoretical and empirical focused papers that reflect the diverse and eclectic nature of research in corporate responsibility and sustainability. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Business Ethics and Sustainability
- Corporate Responsibility and Managing Stakeholders
- Corporate Sustainability Performance, Integrated Reporting and Social Reporting
- Education for Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
- Micro Level Corporate Responsibility
- International Corporate Responsibility
- Leadership and Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
- Sustainable Consumption
- Social Enterprises, Social Innovation and Sustainability
- Corporate Responsibility, Sustainability and the Natural Environment
- UN Sustainable Development Goals at national and organizational level
Please note that papers will not be accepted, or appear in the programme, unless speaker(s) have registered in full for the conference.
Final conference papers of approximately 6,000 words, including references, should be saved, preferably in PDF format, and emailed to email@example.com on or before 15 August 2022. The first page of the file should contain the title and the names, affiliations, and contact details for all authors. It would also be helpful to include 3-5 keywords.

Riddel Hall & QMS
Riddel Hall is an impressive brick and sandstone Victorian building on the Stranmillis Road, with its individual entrance and gate lodge.
Today it is home to Queen’s Management School and a conference centre, but Riddel Hall has a rich and compelling history. It was built in 1913 as a “house of residence for protestant female students and teachers at Queen’s University Belfast”, thanks to the generosity and dedication of two Belfast philanthropists, Eliza and Isabella Riddel. The Riddel sisters were committed to improving the access of women to higher education and the Hall fulfilled this purpose for 50 years, providing a home away from home to more than a thousand female students.
The School moved to Riddel Hall, which is approximately 10 minutes’ walk south of the main campus, in 2011 following a £13m redevelopment and extension. A new dedicated postgraduate building is currently under construction with an opening date of 2023.
Queen's University Belfast (QUB)Queen’s is the ninth oldest university in the UK, having been first chartered in 1845 as Queen’s College, Belfast. It was part of the Queen’s University of Ireland, also comprising Queen’s College, Cork and Queen’s College, Galway. This union was dissolved by the Irish Universities Act 1908 to create the current National University of Ireland and Queen’s University of Belfast. The University has over 21,000 students and 4,000 staff, with 15 schools organised within three faculties. Queen’s has over 250 buildings, some 120 of them listed as being of architectural merit, with the centrepiece Lanyon Building, located beside Belfast’s botanical gar-dens in South Belfast. The campus has been recently modernised through £700m of investment over a 20-year capital development programme. This has included the McClay Library, student accommodation, Students’ Union and refurbishment of existing lecture theatres. Queen's is at the heart of Belfast's culture, as well as its art and social scenes. We're proud to be part of a bustling, cosmopolitan city boasting a vibrant social life and rich cultural heritage.
Belfast and BeyondSmall enough to feel like home,big enough for adventure and exploration, Northern Ireland’s world famous mixture of breathtaking landscapes, contemporary cities and friendly people makes it the perfect destination.
From intimate galleries to international artists, Belfast has it all, including our very own Naughton Gallery and Queen's Film Theatre. The Ulster Museum is close to the campus and hosts a number of significant art collections as well as contemporary exhibitions.
There’s plenty to see outside the city, including the famous filming locations for the HBO series Game of Thrones, the awe-inspiring Giant’s Causeway, voted the UK’s best Heritage Attraction, and the Mourne Mountains, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty canonised as CS Lewis’ Narnia.
