Summary

This Special Issue of Business, Peace, and Sustainable Development is based on the American University of Sharjah's Business and Peace Conference held in the United Arab Emirates on the 15th of November 2015. It offers an attempt to show what a combination of research and practice might look like, and how the gap between research-practitioners and more traditional researchers might be bridged. The papers presented here engage with and describe what practitioners are doing in the field: how businesses in conflict and buffer states are acting to enhance peace. The five articles in this special issue address this central theme with four field-based research papers and one peace dialogue. The four research papers are based on field research and interviews conducted with practitioners from multinationals, civil society, international organizations and those working on the ground in Samoa, Malawi, and Papua New Guinea. Brought together by guest editor John Katsos, this issue truly emphasises BPSD's key aim of furthering an interdisciplinary understanding of the mutual development of business and peace.
