Research Conference



Dear friends and colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the V International Conference of Work and Family. The Conference will be held in Barcelona, Spain and it is organized by the International Center of Work and Family of IESE Business School.

The International Center for Work and Family founded an academic forum in 2005 –the International Conference of Work and Family- to create a vision and to build theory, with special attention to the cross-cultural dimension and the application of theory in an organizational context.

The fifth bi-annual International Conference of Work & Family, aims to focus on the management of work, family and personal life in the rapidly changing context of the twenty-first century.

We are specifically interested in papers that focus on leadership from not only new perspectives on management but also on new approaches to parenthood and society. We are also interested in papers on a wide range of topics that address current problems and key issues in the work-family field. For example, what are the impacts of changes in the global economy and national economies in the age of austerity on work-family agendas at macro, meso and micro levels? How do individuals, families, and organizations proactively cope with socio-economic pressures?

Similarly, new approaches on sociology and psychology introduce new intriguing questions like: Does a new fatherhood really exist? Do men and women cope with different strategies to address work-family balance? How do global players implement work-family policies around the world?

The Conference will take place in July from 1st to 3rd in Barcelona. 
Proposals for the different options should be submitted through the electronic system available in this site.

Barcelona is unequivocally a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location but also and above all because of its history, tradition and cultural influences. Its privileged climate, its great number of tourist attractions and its friendly atmosphere will give you plenty of opportunities to enjoy the city over and above the academic program we are preparing for you.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Barcelona!
