The field of International Business (IB) has flourished in an era of unprecedented globalization. But we now live in a time of de-globalization, and the discourse has shifted from differences between countries to differences within countries, leading to an increasing focus on diversity. At the same time old mistakes threaten to be repeated. Where previously IB emphasized the positive aspects of internationalization, now the mantra is that “diversity is good”. In the valedictory address delivered by Prof. Niels Noorderhaven on March 25, he will argue that diversity research can learn from the mistakes made by the field of IB.
EU funds research project CircoMod EU for modeling the circular economy to mitigate climate change21st March 2022
With increasing populations and expanding wealth, global material consumption has seen a precipitous increase. These materials are often discarded after use (the so-called linear model). Moreover, the massive use and production of materials are also associated with the extensive use of energy. The emissions from structural materials are often difficult to decarbonise. As such, high levels of material consumption pose a major challenge for meeting climate targets. In this context, the circular economy (CE) has been presented as an alternative to the current linear model.
