If Stakeholders ruled the World - Stakeholder Relations in the 21st Century

The London School of Economics and Political Science, Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building (NAB), 54 Lincolns Inn Fields, London, 9:30 am – 1:30 pm, Wednesday, 28th May 2014

*** The Post conference 'Press Release' is now available ***

The power of stakeholders has increased dramatically in the last decade. However, the stakeholder management structures of corporations have not kept pace with this development. Thus, organizations in the 21st century have to find strategies to build effective relationships with their stakeholders and thereby to contribute to sustainable development. Not doing so runs the risk of losing their societal legitimacy, their “licence to operate”. 

At this conference, representatives from corporate business, politics, academia, and civil society discss the latest developments in stakeholder relations practice. Please see here for more information or here for the event flyer.
