Conference Theme: “Power”

July 13–16, 2015 | Thistle Brighton, Brighton, UK

Conference Report

The European Business and Management Conference (EBMC2015) was held alongside The European Conference on Politics, Economics and Law (ECPEL2015), The European Conference on the Social Sciences (ECSS2015), The European Conference on Sustainability, Energy & the Environment (ECSEE2015) in Brighton on the picturesque South Coast of the United Kingdom.

This international and interdisciplinary conference week brought together over 220 delegates from 40 countries under the conference theme of Power to discuss new directions of research and discovery across business and management, politics and law, the social sciences, and sustainability and environmental scholars. We were greatly encouraged to see the well-attended sessions challenge and inspire serious debate in a climate of mutual respect.
