The Responsible Management Learning and Education Literature Base aims to support responsible management research and practice by providing an up-to-date compendium of responsible management learning and education publications. The Literature Base may help authors to position their work in the existing literature or practitioners to ground their practice in research. A publication is included if it refers to responsible management learning and education, or to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in their respective title. If you know a source that qualifies for inclusion, but which is not on this list yet, please let us know here. Also have a look at the ‘sister’ blog post of literature discussing responsible management, responsible managers and their work: The Responsible Management Literature List.
