Special Issue on: “Gender Issues”

Contributions are invited to a special issue of IJESB that attempt to relate the essential characteristics of entrepreneurship to the general concept of moral progress. Contributions should be mindful of the ideological dimensions of entrepreneurial practices and the associated discourse.

Entrepreneurship involves the human abilities to incubate an idea, design a new synthesis (the entrepreneur’s plan), assemble resources and coordinate action.

Moral progress can be envisaged in many ways but contributors should be mindful of the fundamental dualism that pervades the entire literature on business and society, business ethics and left vs. right leaning politics (e.g. single vs. double bottom line etc.)

Subject Coverage
Contributions are particularly welcomed that relate components of this “dualism” to the theory and practice of entrepreneurship, e.g.
  • value priorities
  • ethical theories
  • known strengths and limitations of market-based systems
  • wealth-creation and poverty-alleviation, etc.
