The Study and Practice of Global Leadership
An Edited Volume in the International Leadership Association series Building Leadership Bridges, published by Emerald Group Publishing

Call for Chapter Proposals Deadline: 19 April 2019

Emerald Group Publishing Logo The International Leadership Association (ILA) invites you to submit a chapter proposal for possible inclusion in the volume, entitled The Study and Practice of Global Leadership, to be edited by Gama Perruci and published in 2020 by Emerald Group Publishing as part of a suite of three books within the Building Leadership Bridges (BLB) series focused on Global Leadership. The series is intended to capture the best contemporary thinking about leadership from a diverse range of scholars, practitioners, and educators working in the field of leadership.

Book Summary

Since the turn of the new millennium, leadership educators and scholars have paid considerable attention to the global context of the leader-follower relationship. Practitioners also see an urgent need for greater clarity in our understanding of how leadership works under globalization. This BLB book will provide educators, scholars, and practitioners with the latest concepts and resources as we seek to make sense of the tremendous impact that globalization is having on the future of leadership in an increasingly interdependent world. The book will explore the connection between globalization and the field of leadership. It will be divided into three parts: (1) The Connection between Leadership and the Global Context; (2) The Impact of Globalization on the Study of Leadership; and (3) The Impact of Globalization on the Practice of Leadership. In your proposal, please specify which of the three sections you think your chapter will most likely fit.

Submission Guidelines

Interested authors should develop a (1,000-words maximum) proposal or summary of their proposed chapter to submit initially. The deadline to submit is 19 April 2019. Preliminary acceptance (announced at the end of April 2019) will be based on these proposals. Selected authors will fully develop their submissions with input from the editor – a full manuscript will be due to the editor by the end of December 2019. Decisions will be based on the clarity of thought and writing in the proposal and the extent to which it fits the purposes of this book.
