International Corporate Social Responsibility: What Role for Governments?
UCL Global Governance Institute Keynote Lecture with Jette Steen Knudsen

In February 2018, Jette Steen Knudsen, Professor of Policy and International Business at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, called for a more systematic analysis of the various ways in which government policies interact with CSR initiatives as part of her recent keynote lecture at University College London’s Global Governance Institute.

William L. Clayton Professor of International Economic Affairs Michael W. Klein sits down with James Stavridis, Dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, to discuss Econofact, the non-partisan publication co-founded by Klein and colleague, Prof. Edward Schumacher-Matos. Econofact, launched in January 2017, now boasts a network of over 70 contributing economists and is designed to bring key facts and incisive analysis to the national debate on economic and social policies.

After the Wall Street crash of 2008, Fabian Olarte (MIB ’11) found himself seeking a new career path. He decided there was no better place to do so than at The Fletcher School, and is grateful for the warm, helpful community he found at the school: “A lot of people helped me get my job and helped me advance in my career, and I’m doing the same for them.”

Dean Bhaskar Chakravorti helped provide the answers to these questions and many more as part of his webinar with the Harvard Business Review.

Over half of the world’s population lives in cities. Making cities work is one of the great imperatives of our time. At Fletcher’s Institute for Business in the Global Context we aim to provide a platform to help bring urban innovators and entrepreneurs to the forefront of the conversation through research and conferences, such as our Inclusive City Forum and Inclusion, Inc. Forum.

A new video from Harvard Business Review takes an in-depth look at some findings of the Digital Evolution Index (DEI) from our Planet eBiz team. Check it out below!
