5th International Workshop on the Sharing Economy

31 March: Abstract Submission Deadline!

Despite the undisputed progress in better understanding the sharing economy by mapping and systematizing different application areas, market orientations or types of consumption there is still a long way to go before we can close the gap between practical and theoretical development in the sharing economy. Hence, our aim is to bring together research and researchers from a wide variety of theoretical backgrounds and disciplines to encourage academic discourse on theorizing the sharing economy phenomenon by addressing the following questions:

  • How can existing theories and disciplines inform research in the sharing economy to better understand the practical phenomenon?
  • How can practical development in the sharing economy stimulate existing theories and trigger theory development?
  • How can contributions from different disciplines contribute to develop a holistic picture of the sharing economy?

Invite are project and paper contributions that are grounded in different disciplines and theoretical perspectives, including organization theory, strategic management, information systems, political science, sociology, cultural studies, psychology, legal studies, economic geography, business history and others.

The workshop is for academics, practitioners, representatives of civil society and everyone else who is interested in research on the sharing economy.
