After the adoption of the Washington Consensus, there were large expectations regarding economic growth and development in the Latin American region. However, growth has been relatively modest and varied and large inequalities remain. In this context, the role of companies in society and how they do business have been questioned. Institutional pressures for new business models that provide value to multiple stakeholders are growing, and are particularly strong for firms with international operations. Questions remain regarding how traditional and emerging market multinationals should respond to this situation, what business models should they pursue, and which firms obtain reputation benefits from responding to these pressures?

To address these issues, the Latin American Chapter of the Academy of International Business (AIB-LAT) announces its 7th Annual conference “Corporate Shared Values, MNCs and Corporate Reputation in Latin America”, to be held in Lima, Peru at ESAN University from March 8 -10, 2017.

We cordially invite you to submit papers related to the theme of the conference. Papers more broadly based on international business and Latin America will also be welcomed. The review of manuscripts for the conference will be led by Program Chair Jorge Carneiro (PUC-Rio, Brazil), under the following track structure, led by the track chairs listed below:

  • CSR, Sustainability and Corp. Gov.: Maria Alejandra Gonzalez- Perez (EAFIT, Colombia) 
  • Entrepreneurship and Family Business: Patricio Duran (UAI, Chile)
  • FDI and Internationalization: Mario Henrique Ogasavara (ESPM, Brazil)
  • Institutions and International Business: Diego Finchelstein (UDESA, Argentina)
  • Management, Marketing and HRM: Carlos Rodríguez (INCAE, Nicaragua)
  • International Business in Latin America and the Caribbean: David Mayorga (UP, Peru)
