Partnering with business to promote human security and the SDGs: comparative experiences

Hosted by LSE IDEAS and Universidad del Rosario, supported by LSE KEIF

Online public conference

How can business collaborate with other actors to find innovative solutions to contemporary development and security issues facing societies and policymakers?

The conference will provide an opportunity for scholars, policymakers and practitioners to discuss changing parameters of business engagement across different geographical and political contexts and explore the key challenges of business working with other actors at the local level, informed by the insights and experiences of academics and practitioners in multiple regions.

This conference is over two days, from 2 to 5.30pm BST on both Tuesday 13 April and Wednesday 14 April.

Conference sessions will explore:

  • Forms of collaborative governance centred on building and maintaining constructive relationships among business and other societal actors;
  • What kind of data is required to assess the social impact of business;
  • The tools that can facilitate collaboration among business and other actors;
  • The role of technology in transforming relationships between business and local communities.
