The global economy, as a whole, is in a state of unprecedented turmoil and uncertainty, which is profoundly impacting all aspects of human life. The “next normal” will definitely be different. This does not imply a return to the conditions that prevailed before 2019. As a result, businesses are currently undergoing an incredible transformation as they are facing challenges posed by the health crisis and conflicts at the geoeconomic, ecological, technical and institutional levels. Indeed, the terms "pre-war" and "post-war" are commonly used to describe the 20th century. As a response to these new complexities, businesses, both globally and nationally, are forced to adapt to the "new normal" in order to survive and thrive in this unlikely scenario.
The world is currently moving toward the next normal, which prompts decision makers to reconsider their business models by implementing new, different, and innovative managerial approaches. This will result in the creation of new technologies, the development of new products and services as well as the modification of value chain processes. In accordance, sustainable development is becoming today a necessity, a key component in corporate decision-making, and an inevitable choice for ensuring a competitive advantage and avoiding the most serious environmental and socioeconomic effects of climate change. Sustainability has been studied for decades by researchers in a variety of fields, including finance, marketing, logistics and supply chain management, human resources, and ethics together with social responsibility.
The aim of this international conference is to discuss and expose state-of-the-art research findings in the fields of economics and management. It also seeks to create synergies between different research streams. The scientific event will provide an opportunity for academicians, researchers, practitioners, and entrepreneurs to gather, learn, share, and debate current and emerging topics in various fields relating to new management and economic practices in the era of the new normal.
