Call for papers: "Leadership and Management: Challenges and Issues Facing Organisations in Developing Countries"

For a special issue of the Middle East Journal of Management.

The goal of this special issue will be to present research on challenges and issues faced by organisations in developing countries. Unlike organisations working and operating in developed countries, developing country organisations are facing issues and challenges that are different. The leadership and management styles of developing and newly developed Asian countries differ. Some of the theories that can be applied in developed countries become redundant in the Asian context especially if theories related to motivation, commitment, leadership etc are analysed. Therefore, to have an in-depth knowledge of challenges being faced by developing country organisations would yield new insights for theory building.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on Governance and Public Policy (ICGPP’18), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
  • Leadership challenges
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Human resource issues faced by organisations in developing world
  • Organisational learning and learning organisation
  • Corporate sustainability
  • Supply chain management
  • Financial planning and management
  • Women in business
