Centre for Business & Liability - Opening Conference: International Conference - Business Resilience
Conference and Call for Research Proposals

25 and 26 of January 2018, Leiden Law School, The Netherlands

Centre for Business & Liability (CBL) would like to invite you to its Opening Conference, which will be held in Leiden, The Netherlands on 25 and 26 of January 2018, on International Conference - Business Resilience.

OVERVIEW: Business resilience has emerged as a response to the decreasing lifespan of businesses and the inability of key stakeholders to adequately address issues of preparedness and responsiveness to incremental change and sudden business disruptions. This international conference on business resilience emphasizes drivers of change and responsiveness to change from three perspectives:
- Technology as a driver of change to the organisation and corporate governance of businesses;
- Long-term value creation as a driver of change in capital markets, corporate governance and businesses;
- Directors' duties and liabilities as drivers of change in directors' willingness to take risks and adopt innovative solutions.

CALL FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS: As part of the Opening Conference, in order to foster forward-looking and cross-disciplinary academic research, CBL is launching the Call for Research Proposals. Researchers are invited to submit an outline of their research proposal not exceeding 500 words by 1 December 2017.
