The focus of this research group is to undertake research that engages with key stakeholders, (i.e. governments, practitioners and communities/individuals) impacted by the societal activities of business, both in developing countries and developed countries. The key research questions are:

  1. What is the role of business in poverty alleviation?
  2. What changes do business face in implementing seemingly two contradictory objectives to alleviate poverty and make profit?
  3. How can the underlying principles draw on existing theory and practice as well as expanding theory/ practice ?
