    Dear Friends and Colleagues,


    The Fundação Amélia de Mello (FAM) Paradox & Plurality meeting is an annual event aimed at discussing organizational and societal problems from a paradoxical perspective. Paradox refers to opposite forces that mutually define one another and persist over time. The fact that organizational and societal issues contain paradoxical features is the point of departure of our debates, our mission consisting in the use of scholarly research on paradox to inform debate and facilitate performance and progress.


    This edition will discuss family firms, since they are a crucial component of modern economies.  They have been presented as having potential competitive advantages, but they are paradoxical. In the quest to become a bridge between family business practitioners and researchers, the aim of the conference is to create a fertile ground to advance family business research by contributing to the discussion of:

    • Family firms' impact in society;
    • State of family business research;
    • Advancement of work-in-papers that need further development;
    • New and relevant questions concerning family business.

    You are cordially invited to submit your abstract to the 3rd FAM Leadership and Society Forum which will be held at the NOVA SBE Campus in Carcavelos (Portugal), so scholars across disciplines can come together, share information, and learn from one another.


    Important Dates:

    February 23, 2020: Proposal Submission Deadline

    March 31, 2020: Notification of Acceptance
