Letter from President 

Dear colleagues and friends,

We are very pleased to have received more than 100 topics and close to 30 symposia proposals for our 2018 Iceland Conference! A large selection of tracks that deal with different aspects of management and various challenges the world faces will generate stimulating debates. Together with inspiring symposia, they will enrich our understanding of management. I would like to thank to all the track/symposium proponents and SIGs which will host them. Our website offers detailed information about each track accepted for our 2018 Conference.

This year we have a novelty! EURAM emphasises responsible research which foresees and assesses potential consequences and societal prospects of relevant questions. In line with this focus, EURAM has decided to support responsible research through research grants. We have now one large grant (50 000 USD) in collaboration with Project Management Institute. EURAM has also introduced smaller grants (5000 Euros) to support several small-scale research projects. Please do not forget to renew your membership to have access to our grants. I strongly encourage you to further check our website for conditions of application. 

After a successful first edition, we will have the second edition of the EURAM book award. Our website provides information about the rules in relation to the award. We are looking forward to receiving your nominations.

I would like to invite you to discover the opportunities EURAM offers!                                                                                                                 

Sibel Yamak, President

EURAM Awards

Book Award 2018


Deadline for nominations: 31 January 2018

In 2017, a new “Best Book of the Year Award” was started by the Academy.
We are now very pleased to launch the second edition of this award which is accompanied with a cash prize of €2500. The award is granted annually to a scholarly authored book in the general field of management studies (single or multiple authored). Only scholarly books/monographs (not edited books or textbooks) may be nominated. The language of the book should be English (in the future we hope to extend this to more languages). Date of publication must be the last year before the conference (for 2018: books with 2017 as year of publication). All fields of management are included.

A nomination for a book can be made either by any Strategic Interest Group (SIG), or by any individual, including self-nominations. At least one of the authors of the nominated book should be either a current member of EURAM or become a member in order to accept the Award.

There is no formal nomination form, but the document should be no longer than 600 words (plus a short cover letter).

Nominations should be submitted to Vice President Research via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by 31 January.  A designated committee will choose the winner, based on the criteria of scholarly impact – rigor and relevance of the book – with consideration for the ‘European’ element of the book. 

The winner(s) will be announced at the EURAM Conference in Reykjavik in June 2018.

EURAM Annual Conferences

EURAM 2018 Conference – 20-23 June 2018, Reykjavik, University of Iceland


Deadline for submission of papers: 10 January 2018


The story of the EURAM Experience in Iceland

The president of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, is opening the EURAM 2018 conference in Iceland, 20 June. Guðni is an academic, a historian, and can therefore appreciate the effort of scholars and the importance of the exchange of ideas and knowledge in an international setting. The story of EURAM 2018 in Reykjavik is already being written. The call for papers was sent out the 26th of September, following a call and development of topics. It was the first chapter. There are 89 tracks being offered in the call process which is a record number of tracks. EURAM 2018 is therefore already making history.

The preparation for the conference is in full swing and the aim of the local organizing committee is to make the conference a great experience. The location of Reykjavik, Iceland, is very unique but the ambition is to create moments and stories which will be remarkable. It should be an inspiration for story-telling. Moments are created because of the location but more importantly because of the networking and co-creation effort of academics and practitioners.

The organizers of EURAM 2018 can make the framework for inspiration and creative effort but the movement must come from the participants. The theme of the conference – Research in Action – Accelerating Knowledge Creation in Management – is an effort to inspire a certain type of research and dialogue which tries to bridge the gap between academia and practice. The EURAM 2018 conference is somewhat a bridge between academic and practical experience. It should be an experience for academic thinking, as well as the practical mind.

EURAM 2018 will hopefully inspire academics to tell new and interesting stories. Iceland has been called the story island, because of the old Viking sagas. The president of Iceland will be a part of the EURAM 2018 saga and hopefully there will be a collective effort to make EURAM 2018 a good story. Let’s make history together!

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee

Eythor Ivar Jonsson, Conference Chair

Handbook of Sustainability in Management Education

In Search of a Multidisciplinary, Innovative and Integrated Approach Research Handbooks in Business and Management series

Edited by Jorge A. Arevalo and Shelley F. Mitchell

This Handbook strives to enhance knowledge and application within sustainability in management education (SiME) across different academic programs, geographic regions and personal/professional contexts. Cross-disciplinary and boundary-spanning, this book focuses on specific themes and is therefore split into four distinct sections: one on theory and practice, one on transformational interventions in business programs, one on the role of external agents and the last on innovative approaches in SiME.

Call For papers on Borders: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal
Special Issue for the 10th Anniversary of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Conference

At the moment, countries around the world are experiencing unprecedented times where borders are being scrutinised, closed, renegotiated, and rebuilt.  Social and political instability, civil war, environmental disasters, collapsing economies, and widening income inequality have led to migration as an avenue for survival for many (cf. Ng and Bloemraad, 2015).  This large scale, forced migration in turn has led to various countries having reinstated borders (particularly in the EU) as a reaction to a surge in refugee streams over the past few years. In the US, President Trump unsuccessfully attempted to impose a travel ban for citizens from 7 Muslim majority countries.  His administration is now focused on building a wall along the US and Mexican border.  In the UK, citizens voted for “Brexit” to take back ‘control over their borders.’  Meanwhile, Presidential Candidate Marine Le Pen has called for France to reinstate its borders after a series of terrorist attacks.  Countries such as Canada and Germany, however, have opened their borders to refugees during the last summer. [...]

Paper may be submitted beginning October 1, 2017, and the deadline for submissions is February 1, 2018.
Please submit enquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..uk.  Submissions should be made through ScholarOne.

We would like to share with you a Journal of Business Ethics special issue call for papers on “Responsible Management Learning: Change and Innovation for Sustainability, Responsibility, Ethics”. The special issue focuses on the learning of the practicing manager and the connections that learning for sustainability, responsibility, and ethics have with organisational change and innovation. We seek contributions that focus on individual managers in their work environments. Submissions should explore how managers generate new and acquire existing knowledge and how they develop competences to make organisations sustainable, responsible, and ethical. The focus is on individual learning and development in an organisational context (rather than on organisational learning or on teaching in educational institutions).
Deadline: 31 March 2018. Editors are happy to discuss ideas for potential submissions.

EURAM member Dr. Burr working with Director of Security for a major healthcare organization in North Carolina completed an article on Violence and Prevention in Healthcare. Challenges exist for healthcare workers, managers, patients and visitors related to Workplace Violence due to the dangerous and complex occupational hazards in hospital systems (McPhaul, London, Lipscomb, 2004). Specific organizational structures and purposeful organizational processes are required to address violence in healthcare systems due to the stress filled, fast paced environment particularly when violence is often tolerated and accepted as part of the job. Preventing violence in the healthcare setting was issued by the Joint Commission on June 3, 2010 as Sentinel Event Alert # 45 and updated February 2017. The focus is on understanding the types and causes of violence, security assessments, surveys and tools used to determine appropriate levels of and types of security in the health care sector as a security leader.
