Welcome to the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability

The Centre

The Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability provides a platform for collaborative, inter-disciplinary work across the School of Management and Governance, all schools within Murdoch University and outside institutions. The Centre seeks to advance teaching and research in areas that are at the heart of key global challenges and relevant to future university graduates and society at large.

The Centre's objectives are to:

  • be an outward-facing and socially relevant organisation that engages with the communities it wishes to serve;
  • engage in high quality teaching and research to shape new thinking and practice on key aspects of responsible citizenship and sustainability; and
  • create an environment that is conducive to collaboration and promotes the development of research students and early career scholars.

CRCS to Host International CSR Conference in 2017

Updated: 13 August 2015

The Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability has been successful in its bid to host the International CSR, Sustainability, Ethics & Governance Conference under the auspices of the Global Corporate Governance Institute. The conference will cover aspects of CSR, sustainability, ethics and governance from across the field of business and beyond and will cater also for HDR students.

With the generous support from the Perth Convention Bureau Dr Martin Brueckner recently attended this year’s conference at Nanjing University of Finance and Economics, China. Beyond an academic paper presentation the visit served the purpose of promoting the Centre and thus the School and Murdoch University as conference host for the 2017 conference. The bid was supported by Prof Rene Schmidpeter from the Cologne Business School, who was a visiting fellow with the Centre in late July.

The Centre will also co-host the 2016 conference, which will be held at the Cologne Business School 1 - 3 August in 2016. Calls for papers will be sent out in due course.
