Let’s put Leadership in its Place!

The 18th International Studying Leadership Conference (ISLC) will take place in December 2019 in Bristol (UK). The proposed conference theme, Putting Leadership in its Place, could give us a great opportunity to further link the two key concepts at the basis of our works and to better introduce our network and works to leadership scholars.

Given the rise of backward-looking populism in many countries, it becomes more important than ever to develop a better understanding of those place-based, leadership efforts that strive to advance progressive values relating to economic, social and environmental justice in modern society.
