Research Committee on Asian and Pacific Studies (RC18) 
Research Committee on Politics and Business (RC38) 


The broad goal of this conference is to exchange and improve our knowledge and understanding of the corporate role in development. The overarching question we ask is: How does business in different industries impact the end beneficiaries of development processes (such as labour, local communities, broader population, local consumers, environment) and how do different governments regulate these business mechanisms? By asking such a complex question we try to highlight the multi-sided nature of business, its success, and failure in facilitating development processes, as well as how different governments facilitate it or manage to regulate business mechanisms for the benefit of their populations. We would like to invite researchers, experts, and practitioners from different industries such as but not limited to:

Environment
Business, Economy & Labour
Technology & Infrastructure
Culture & Entertainment
