Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal – Special Issue: Cross-sector dialogue for sustainability: To partner or not to partner?

This special issue aims to provide academics with a theoretical understanding of the relationship between the notion of partnership and the need for cross-sector dialogue among civil society organizations, businesses and their associated supply chains – an understanding that may take partnership as a starting point for good dialogue, but may also problematize the partnership imperative implied by SDG 17 and suggest alternative paths for effective dialogue conducive to sustainable development.

We would especially like to encourage theoretical and empirical papers that tackle the issue partnership for sustainability in new and bold ways.
