 Call for Papers

The aim of the Third Annual International Conference on Business and Public Policy (ICBPP 2011) is to provide a forum for academic discussion on the global business and public policy issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Over the last two decades Global Business and Public Policy has become intertwined. While traditionally these two topics were treated separately, focusing mainly on developed countries, it is now time to consider these issues from a global perspective, especially considering the growing impact of the Newly Industrialized Countries on the global economy. The conference will welcome submissions from scholars of every disciple including business, economic, finance, public policy economic development, politics, science, technology, global security and public policy, sociology, and other practitioners in any field that impacts business and/or public policy. There is no better place to discuss issues of global perspective than in the U.S. capital city – Washington, DC. Participants will be able to enjoy shows, attractions, activities, and tours available in the capital city.

Who should attend?

The conference will bring together academics, policy experts, researchers, practitioners, healthcare experts, economists, financial experts, public officials, business professionals, graduate students, and other stakeholders. The aim is to bring together an international interdisciplinary audience in order to explore these topics and more.
