A delegation of PCCC participated in the 14th Biennial International Society of Markets and Development (ISMD) conference. Dr. Janice Denegri-Knott was part of organising team and co-chair of the conference. Dr. Georgiana Grigore delivered a critical and well evidenced illustration of the failure of corporate social responsibility as an ethical project in Romanian businesses.
The aim of the conference was to mobilize diverse and multidisciplinary perspectives and offer better understanding of the processes of practices of development in contemporary society. Papers presented provided alternative definition of development and the role of markets to counter dominant narratives that reduce development to a GDP figure.
