Contemporary issues in management



A growth in the availability of ethics research may provide new research in legal decision making (Laakso & Polonioli, 2018).   Laakso and Polonioli (2018) analyzed the availability of open access ethics research online.  Stojanovski (2015) highlight the growth in the number of open access and hybrid scientific journals.  Seck, Devlin, and Quigg (2021) describe ethical legal decision making as a contextual and reflective task.  Clark, Moorhead, Vaughan, and Brener (2022) identify challenges in the ethical decision making of corporate lawyers.

Contemporary issues such as information communication technologies, globalization, and the health pandemic may present challenges for existing legal systems (Hoevenaars, 2020).  Hoevenaars (2020) present challenges in training lawyers to handle cases in specialized courts.  Parmet (2021) reviews the influence of the legal system on liberties during the time of a health pandemic.  Haupt (2021) reviews the spread of medical information and rumors online and how free speech may allow illicit medical advice.

Improving equity in health care systems may present a challenge for medical professionals (Brenner et al., 2021).  Brenner et al. (2021) describes the challenges in providing quality health care for undocumented immigrants.  Opel and Larson (2021) express the importance of building confidence in vaccination as a response to communicable diseases.  Andreae, Sood, and Dellasega (2022) propose intervention systems for hostile situations for health care workers.  Taylor (2020) assesses the history of racial inequities in health care systems.  Katrina, Meaghan, Kaylee, Christina, and Courtney (2022) explain how inequities in housing can also create inequities in health care.

Perspectives on conflict resolution systems



Conflict resolution research may result in the development of strategies and ontologies for conflict resolution management (Birch, Daxecker, & Höglund, 2020; Pradeep & Kant, 2022).  Birch et al. (2020) review how electoral violence is prompted as both a strategy and mitigation method for electoral conflicts.  Pradeep and Kant (2022) discover techniques for defining and characterizing conflicts in technological systems.

Modeling and evaluation may provide strategies for developing policies and procedures in conflict resolution systems (Dell’Aquila, Vallone, Zurlo, & Marocco, 2022; Lamidi, 2021).  Dell’Aquila et al. (2022) apply behavior modelling for the psychological and pedagogical elements of conflict resolution in training environments.  Lamidi (2021) evaluates and discusses key peace building strategies of quick intervention, cross-examinations of disputants and negotiation as critical for adaptation of co-existent environments.

Relations and comparisons may provide new strategies for developing conflict resolution systems(Prorok & Huth, 2019; Sharoni, 2017).  Prorok and Huth (2019) compare literature of civil and international armed conflicts.  Sharoni (2017) make a comparison between conflict resolution and feminine studies research.

Technology and conflict resolution systems



Conflict resolution models may integrate problem solving approaches of science and engineering (Africa, 2013).  Africa (2013) developed a conflict resolution model based on systems engineering and analysis techniques.  Carrel and Ebner (2019) provide examples of how technology can support in person mediation.

Data analysis tools may provide resources for evaluating resolved conflicts and integrating practices.  Di Salvatore, Lundgren, Oksamytna, and Smidt (2022) review data analysis tools which may provide resources for evaluations of international conflicts.  Teshome (2019) provides the example of traditional conflict resolution systems.

Applications of technology may potentially support a variety of fields of research.  McCoy and Somer (2018) compare and evaluate democracies for characteristics of polarization.  Eschmann and Nilsson (2022) describe social and economic elements which may be reviewed in peace negotiations.  Teshome (2019) explains challenges in providing retributive and restorative justice in violent conflicts.

Risk management in public and private partnerships



Risk management may be a key process for implementing effective public and private partnerships (Moro Visconti, Martiniello, Morea, & Gebennini, 2019).   Moro Visconti et al. (2019) review risk sharing strategies for introducing health information technology for public and private partnerships of health institutions.  Albertus (2019) describe public and private partnerships as needing to address the three issues of value and return on government investments, governance and public accountability, and risk sharing and risk management.  Alsaedi, Sherief, Phalp, and Ali (2021) review organizational risks for online social transparency for decision making and planning for management.

Public and private partnerships may provide opportunities for supporting technological innovation (Sheikh et al., 2021).  Bermúdez-Edo, Hurtado-Torres, and Aragón-Correa (2010) apply the theory of reasoned action to evaluate approaches to online activity in employment searches.  Sheikh et al. (2021) credit public and private partnerships for driving digital innovation such as artificial intelligence and robotics.  Krijger et al. (2021) showcases the public and private partnerships between research institutions and government initiatives during the recent health pandemic.  Ballantyne and Stewart (2019) offer the example of the human genome project for a public private partnership between private companies and public institutions for big data.

Public and private partnerships may influence social policies among communities and within organizations (Laín, 2022; Zhang, 2022).  Tremblay-Boire, Prakash, and Calderon (2022) assess political narrative to influence the delivery of public services to underserved populations.  Berg (2022) provides novel research to evaluate predictors for success in creative industries.  Zhang (2022) explains how regulations can influence cultural norms and organizational behavior.  Laín (2022) suggests evaluations of existing data collected from experiments in universal basic income for understanding mechanisms of social policies and public institutions.

Opportunities and challenges in international joint ventures



The growth of international joint ventures may be due to a number of reasons Lurie (2016).  Lurie (2016) discusses and credits the growth of cooperative ventures to the development of information communication technology, globalization, risk and cost management, and greater opportunities for alliances.  Ott, Williams, Saker, and Staley (2019) evaluate hypotheses and theories of international joint ventures among companies in different countries.  Sulemana and Chen (2019) assess venture capital initiatives in statistical tests to review policies associated with their effects on small and medium sized enterprises.

Joint ventures may be opportunities to share information among firms and with the public (Lee & Muminov, 2021).  Lee and Muminov (2021) develop a mathematical model for theorizing influences of information sharing in research and development between the public and private companies.  Mosse, Njuguna, and Kabubo (2020) describe building information modelling in engineering for sharing information in construction for reliable decision making during the engineering life cycle.  Barmeyer and Davoine (2019) discover cultural differences in international joint ventures may become resources which benefit involved firms.

Challenges to international joint ventures may include greater benefits for small and medium sized enterprises competing in global markets (Grashuis, 2018).  Taylor-Robinson et al. (2012) provide the example of the influence of private and public partnerships in the healthcare industry on public health to suggest the need for understanding obstacles to benefits of such partnerships.  Grashuis (2018) describes the decline of farmer cooperatives in the agricultural industry as a challenge for small farmers in global marketplaces.  Romeli, Halil, Ismail, and Shukor (2016) list some of the challenges to joint ventures to include political risk, economics, cultural adaptation, and governance.

Evaluating public and private partnerships



Emerging research evaluates the effectiveness of partnerships between public companies and private institutions (Demirel, Leendertse, & Volker, 2022).   Demirel et al. (2022) propose strategies for measuring the return on investments of public and private partnerships through examples of practice such as the regulatory asset base and project finance models.  Harikkala-Laihinen (2022) evaluates the effectiveness of programs and their coordination through the viewpoint of the client as a recipient of change.  Bos-de Vos, Deken, and Kleinsmann (2022) evaluate roles and procedures for organizational system transformation programs.

Partnerships may be evaluated for international and organizational effectiveness (Leal Filho et al., 2022).  Leal Filho et al. (2022) evaluate the potential for international partnerships in achieving goals for regional organizations.  Shah, Shah, and El-Gohary (2022) evaluate organizational learning and innovation for small and medium sized businesses.  Korenkiewicz and Maennig (2022) provide an empirical study of customer satisfaction indices to determine effects of executive level gender diversity.

Public and private partnerships may be effective for social and public health policy (Levin, Santiago, & Arthurson, 2022; Taylor-Robinson et al., 2012).  Levin et al. (2022) review strategies to implement diversity in planning outcomes for housing programs.  Taylor-Robinson et al. (2012) identify challenges to the effectiveness of partnerships in the health care industry.  Reich (2000) explains that public and private partnerships have the potential to increase the moral obligations of improving health conditions in developing countries.

Conflict resolution models may integrate problem solving approaches of science and engineering (Africa, 2013).  Africa (2013) developed a conflict resolution model based on systems engineering and analysis techniques.  Carrel and Ebner (2019) provide examples of how technology can support in person mediation.

Data analysis tools may provide resources for evaluating resolved conflicts and integrating practices.  Di Salvatore, Lundgren, Oksamytna, and Smidt (2022) review data analysis tools which may provide resources for evaluations of international conflicts.  Teshome (2019) provides the example of traditional conflict resolution systems.

Applications of technology may potentially support a variety of fields of research.  McCoy and Somer (2018) compare and evaluate democracies for characteristics of polarization.  Eschmann and Nilsson (2022) describe social and economic elements which may be reviewed in peace negotiations.  Teshome (2019) explains challenges in providing retributive and restorative justice in violent conflicts.

Risk management in public and private partnerships



Risk management may be a key process for implementing effective public and private partnerships (Moro Visconti, Martiniello, Morea, & Gebennini, 2019).   Moro Visconti et al. (2019) review risk sharing strategies for introducing health information technology for public and private partnerships of health institutions.  Albertus (2019) describe public and private partnerships as needing to address the three issues of value and return on government investments, governance and public accountability, and risk sharing and risk management.  Alsaedi, Sherief, Phalp, and Ali (2021) review organizational risks for online social transparency for decision making and planning for management.

Public and private partnerships may provide opportunities for supporting technological innovation (Sheikh et al., 2021).  Bermúdez-Edo, Hurtado-Torres, and Aragón-Correa (2010) apply the theory of reasoned action to evaluate approaches to online activity in employment searches.  Sheikh et al. (2021) credit public and private partnerships for driving digital innovation such as artificial intelligence and robotics.  Krijger et al. (2021) showcases the public and private partnerships between research institutions and government initiatives during the recent health pandemic.  Ballantyne and Stewart (2019) offer the example of the human genome project for a public private partnership between private companies and public institutions for big data.

Public and private partnerships may influence social policies among communities and within organizations (Laín, 2022; Zhang, 2022).  Tremblay-Boire, Prakash, and Calderon (2022) assess political narrative to influence the delivery of public services to underserved populations.  Berg (2022) provides novel research to evaluate predictors for success in creative industries.  Zhang (2022) explains how regulations can influence cultural norms and organizational behavior.  Laín (2022) suggests evaluations of existing data collected from experiments in universal basic income for understanding mechanisms of social policies and public institutions.

Opportunities and challenges in international joint ventures



The growth of international joint ventures may be due to a number of reasons Lurie (2016).  Lurie (2016) discusses and credits the growth of cooperative ventures to the development of information communication technology, globalization, risk and cost management, and greater opportunities for alliances.  Ott, Williams, Saker, and Staley (2019) evaluate hypotheses and theories of international joint ventures among companies in different countries.  Sulemana and Chen (2019) assess venture capital initiatives in statistical tests to review policies associated with their effects on small and medium sized enterprises.

Joint ventures may be opportunities to share information among firms and with the public (Lee & Muminov, 2021).  Lee and Muminov (2021) develop a mathematical model for theorizing influences of information sharing in research and development between the public and private companies.  Mosse, Njuguna, and Kabubo (2020) describe building information modelling in engineering for sharing information in construction for reliable decision making during the engineering life cycle.  Barmeyer and Davoine (2019) discover cultural differences in international joint ventures may become resources which benefit involved firms.

Challenges to international joint ventures may include greater benefits for small and medium sized enterprises competing in global markets (Grashuis, 2018).  Taylor-Robinson et al. (2012) provide the example of the influence of private and public partnerships in the healthcare industry on public health to suggest the need for understanding obstacles to benefits of such partnerships.  Grashuis (2018) describes the decline of farmer cooperatives in the agricultural industry as a challenge for small farmers in global marketplaces.  Romeli, Halil, Ismail, and Shukor (2016) list some of the challenges to joint ventures to include political risk, economics, cultural adaptation, and governance.

Evaluating public and private partnerships



Emerging research evaluates the effectiveness of partnerships between public companies and private institutions (Demirel, Leendertse, & Volker, 2022).   Demirel et al. (2022) propose strategies for measuring the return on investments of public and private partnerships through examples of practice such as the regulatory asset base and project finance models.  Harikkala-Laihinen (2022) evaluates the effectiveness of programs and their coordination through the viewpoint of the client as a recipient of change.  Bos-de Vos, Deken, and Kleinsmann (2022) evaluate roles and procedures for organizational system transformation programs.

Partnerships may be evaluated for international and organizational effectiveness (Leal Filho et al., 2022).  Leal Filho et al. (2022) evaluate the potential for international partnerships in achieving goals for regional organizations.  Shah, Shah, and El-Gohary (2022) evaluate organizational learning and innovation for small and medium sized businesses.  Korenkiewicz and Maennig (2022) provide an empirical study of customer satisfaction indices to determine effects of executive level gender diversity.

Public and private partnerships may be effective for social and public health policy (Levin, Santiago, & Arthurson, 2022; Taylor-Robinson et al., 2012).  Levin et al. (2022) review strategies to implement diversity in planning outcomes for housing programs.  Taylor-Robinson et al. (2012) identify challenges to the effectiveness of partnerships in the health care industry.  Reich (2000) explains that public and private partnerships have the potential to increase the moral obligations of improving health conditions in developing countries.
