Professional Development Workshop: Organizing and Market Shaping in Emerging Market Contexts:Exploring Research Methodologies and Avenues for Curriculum Development (PDW 21:1086) Emerging markets are fast gaining global interest as hubs for growth, with South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, respectively, leading in GDP growth prospects (World Bank, 2015). And yet these markets are characterised by extreme poverty, presenting unique opportunities for development and social impact. It becomes imperative then to understand how organising and market shaping unfolds in these markets by creating dialogue between scholars and practitioners, and engaging them in open debate. The PDW purposes to build capacity for research, practice and Higher Education teaching. Participation cuts across various Special Interest Groups, and is open to scholars and practitioners interested in research methodology and topics including, but not limited to: the influences of culture and politics on business, different forms of organising in emerging markets, extreme poverty, and the various financial, technological and market models and innovations enacting in emerging markets. The workshop addresses two main questions: the research methodologies relevant in promoting rich, bottom-up, understandings of organising and market shaping in emerging markets; and how best scholars can incorporate research on emerging markets into HE curriculum development. These questions should stimulate debate on organising and market shaping in emerging markets, and generate an agenda for future meetings. The workshop is designed to be highly interactive, with participants engaging in round table discussions covering three themes: Understanding Emerging Market Contexts, Research Methodologies for Studying Emerging Markets and Curriculum Development. Key outcomes of the PDW will include research themes for follow-on meetings, and on-going dialogue between scholars and practitioners.
