Title of thesis: Exploring the role of local setting dimensions in cross-sector collaborations for sustainable development
Summary of research
New questions are emerging in the management literature regarding the role of local settings and communities and how these can benefit from new organizational interventions and models that aim to address grand challenges such as lack of education, health issues, poverty, energy alternatives, achieving sustainable development, among other. Moreover, there are still variations in the literature in terms of what is considered successful engagement or outcome.
The goal of this research proposal is to contribute to understanding how cross-sector collaborations aimed to achieve sustainable development are embedding the dimensions of their local settings in the formation, implementation and outcomes of their initiatives
