BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION SYMPOSIUM

7TH INTERNATIONAL  SYMPOSIUM ON BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

CREATING A CARING ECONOMICS AFTER THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRISIS:THEORY,RESEARCH AND PRACTICE

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to participate in the 7th International Symposium on Business Administration, which will be held in Canakkale, Turkey, between May11-12, 2012. This Symposium has been jointly organized by Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University, Turkey and the Silesian University, Czheck Republic.

This year’s theme is “Caring Economics”. Conventionally, wealth has been expressed with money, possessions, and property. But the contemporary view is that the true wealth of a nation is measured by it’s people and their values. So, we are calling for a new economic system that has not been seen before. A system that understands and respects not only the work of caring people, but also the world we are sharing. What many are now discovering is that the structure of our current financial system often comes at the expense of our children, our families, our communities, and our planet. People are starting to wake up and understand that wealth is so much more than something material. We need an economic system that can provide nutritious food, good housing, and quality education, while preserving our natural landscape and promoting a stronger sense of community.

We hope to create a platform where various academicians and practitioners in the field can discuss their points of view on the subject. It is expected that the distinguished studies of the participants will greatly enrich the dialogue, and generate positive and productive conversation about the impacts of ‘caring economics practices’ in the field of business and economics.

We are looking forward to receiving your contributions and seeing you inCanakkale,Turkeyon
