Centre for Responsible Organisations & Practices

CROP advances the understanding of responsible organisations and practices through interdisciplinary research in business, management and allied disciplines. Our research has international reach through our world-class scholars. We encourage the expansion of knowledge of responsible organisations and practices.

As societies and organisations grow more complex and interconnected, it is important for an organisation to ensure that they develop and maintain a comprehensive understanding of the impact of their actions in a wider context. Established in 2016 the Centre for Responsible Organisations and Practices (CROP) is a vehicle to foster world-class multidisciplinary research in this area.
