Re-inventing Globalization: Community, Virtues and the Power of Purpose
The ISBEE World Congress lives from the personal exchange and encounters of participants from all over the world, the taste and sense of place, and the spirit of a vibrant community of scholars and practitioners. The ISBEE spirit comes to life especially in a physical meeting and it was decided that a virtual conference in 2021 will not fulfill that purpose
The successful vaccine developments are encouraging and will bring relief over the next few months. However, the situation around the world, especially in Europe and the United States, still raise significant concerns and air travel will continue to be severely limited in 2021. And even with rapid progress and ease of restrictions the lead time to organize a prestigious congress will be insufficient. Since the health and well-being of our members and participants is our first priority, we have therefore decided together with the organizing committee in Bilbao that the next ISBEE World Congress will take place in Bilbao, Spain, July 20-22, 2022.
A new call for papers will be published in due course. Paper acceptances will be honoured but we encourage authors to revise their submissions if, and where, appropriate. More details will be announced.
We look forward to welcoming you in person in Bilbao in 2022!
