The special issue is the “first of its kind” for the journal as “there appears to be a growing interest in this research area, especially since there has been a call in recent times to “decolonialise” the curriculum,” says a guest editorial in the issue. “In this issue, that call has been answered and there are six compelling articles that are poised to make a meaningful contribution to the literature.”
Dr Neil Stott is Faculty (Reader level) in Management Practice and Co-Director of the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation at Cambridge Judge. Dr Michelle Darlington is Head of Knowledge Transfer at the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation.
The guest editorial was written by Dr Leon Prieto of the College of Business at Clayton State University in Georgia and Dr Simone Phipps of the School of Business at Middle Georgia State University, who recently appeared on the Social Innovation Think Tank webinar of the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation. They are the co-authors of a book published last year by Emerald Insight entitled African American Management History: Insights on Gaining a Cooperative Advantage.
