Reasons choosing the Emerging Economies:

This is a historical time for the mentioned regions, and The CCJ intends to offer what is most urgently needed. There is no question that organizations and businesses that are capable of analyzing and applying advanced knowledge in management sciences and development are in high demand, and especially during transitional periods.   It is an unusual time in the target regions and the world, a time which requires active intellectual participation and contributions.  It is the era of revolution in terms of communication, technology, and minds for billions of people.  It is a time for intellectuals, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists to help enlighten minds and therefore enrich the quality of life for millions.  It is a time to focus intensely on the regions’ historical characteristics, achievements, human and natural resources, and its significant deficit in development, management sciences, and democracy.  CIK’s vision, “to cultivate the discourse on human capital potentials for better living,” is the appropriate response to current challenges, and the journal is a platform for sharing the perspectives of scholars and practitioner with a wider audience.
