Everyone is welcome to this PhD Transfer Seminar on ‘Sustainability in the Leather Industry.’
Abstract The implementation of sustainable practices has become an increasingly important topic for industries and more specifically, the supply chains within them. This study focuses on sustainability implementation in a traditional leather industry, with a complex supply chain that has focused on the environment sustainability, even with the existence of measurement and audit tools. But can an industry be truly sustainable by focusing on one sustainability aspect, out of three? How do we effectively implement the other two aspects? After implementation of the other two aspects, how can we effectively measure and track the impacts? The aim of this research is to address these issues by exploring the views of major stakeholders in the leather supply chain. Please register your attendance via Gateway.
Faculty of Business and Law Research Seminar: ‘Institutional Quality, Political Risk and Tourism: Evidence from Gravity Model’ 6th Feb 2019 13:00 to 14:00 TPod A (2nd Floor of Learning Hub)
Everyone welcome as Dr Thaana Ghalia investigates the role of institutional quality coupled with political risks, distance and socio-economic factors to explain tourist flow by applying the gravity model. We found that institutional quality and absence of conflict are driving factors in fostering tourism flows for both source and destination countries. Our finding suggests that institutional reform can help to boost the economies of countries with low- quality institutions. While institutional change is a positive development in its own right, our results suggest that it can also have important additional economic benefits for countries that are highly dependent on tourism.
