York’s Hennick Centre for Business & Law has given its inaugural Collaborative Research Grants Program award to an interdisciplinary team of professors studying transnational business grievance.
The $5,000 research grant was awarded to Professors Burkard Eberlein and Alan Richardson of the Schulich School of Business and Professor Stepan Wood of Osgoode Hall Law School for their proposal, "The Dynamics of Interaction in Transnational Business Governance Regimes".
The winning team will use the funds to convene a multidisciplinary workshop in Toronto this fall to explore the interaction among transnational business governance initiatives such as civil society codes of conduct, industry self-regulatory standards, transgovernmental networks of officials and complex multi-stakeholder governance institutions.
In addition to the multidisciplinary workshop, the Hennick Centre for Business & Law is launching a colloquia series in 2010-2011 for business and law scholars to present works-in-progress and receive feedback from scholars and graduate students from other disciplines. All applicants from the centre’s 2010 Collaborative Research Grants Program will be invited to participate in the series.
