Related to the topic of the conference, a special issue of The Leadership Quarterly will be dedicated to the topic of ‘Economics and Leadership’. Based on a clearly discernible increase of the relevance of leadership in economic research as well as economic factors in traditional leadership models—which goes along with a call from the leadership literature to consider economic factors more seriously—this special issue will bring together research at the cross-roads of economics and leadership. The Call for papers can be found here.
