Country/TerritoryUnited Arab Emirates
OtherThe world as a whole and the UAE in particular has been emerging from the wrenching cataclysm that the Great Recession was. The UAE, however, has shown much resilience and it stands well-poised to take wing as the world economy begins to take flight. Academics can contribute much to this process both in terms of explaining why the world stumbled as well as in charting a path for the future. It is in this spirit that the conference is being held and in the expectation that emerging research paradigms will find expression at the ERPBSS conference.

The objective of this conference is to provide an opportunity for academics to discuss new concepts, progressive methodologies, embryonic approaches and innovative practices within the world of business and the wider social environment. Given that social enquiry is still a maturing field of educational study within this region, it is crucial that business systems, processes and structures are considered in conjunction with contributions from such contemporary fields of social enquiry as media studies, psychology, sociology and tourism education. This is indeed pertinent for understanding service sector economies and societies, as well as comprehending the future role of education as a strategy and contributor to a sustainable learning culture and environment.
