9th Asian Management Research and Case Conference: Management and Public Policy in an Age of Crisis and Disruption
China’s One Belt One Road Initiative: Implications for Management & Organisations in Asia Post Covid-19

Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), with its partners, invites submissions for the 9th Asian Management Research and Case Conference 2021 (AMRC 2021). The COVID-19 pandemic has brought interconnected management and policy challenges to the forefront. In the past year alone, governments and societies worldwide have undertaken transformations that were unimaginable in the past. The significant increase of technology adoption has given a new dimension to the digital revolution, examining consequences on collaboration, education, employment, inequality, innovation, productivity, and other determinants of socioeconomic welfare. In order to explore these challenges, this year, AMRC will explore the intersection of management, technology and public policy in the age of disruption. We also welcome submissions that explore the impact of COVID-19 on CPEC initiatives.

Submissions may include: research papers, teaching cases, panel paper symposia and proposals for doctoral colloquia. All submissions will be reviewed based on originality, rigour, and relevance to the conference theme. All accepted manuscripts will be presented at the conference.
