The Centre

The Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability provides a platform for collaborative, inter-disciplinary work across the School of Business 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 Paper awarded 2017 Emerald Literati Award

Updated 30 May 2017

Drs Rochelle Spencer and Martin Brueckner’s paper “Australian indigenous social enterprise: measuring performance” published in Journal of Enterprising Communities: People and Places in the Global Economy, 10(4): 397-424 has been selected by the journal’s editorial team as the Outstanding Paper in the 2017 Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence. Outstanding Papers form the backbone of the Awards for Excellence. The Editorial Board of each journal is invited to choose a winning paper and three others that deserve a highly commended award from the previous year’s volume.

The Emerald Literati Awards are now in their 24th year and were established to celebrate and reward the outstanding contributions of authors and reviewers to scholarly research. The criteria used to judge the awards are based on six areas that inform the development of our products: internationality; diversity; support for scholarly research; encouragement of applied research (impact); commitment to high quality scholarship; and a desire to ensure reader, author and customer experience is the best it can be.
