Regional Reports

Eastern Europe & the CIS

The GIM report for Eastern Europe & the CIS (to be launched in late-2010) is based on 11 full cases and 7 caselets of inclusive business models from different countries and sectors. The cases have been written by local academics and follow a common research protocol focused on 3 main research questions: How is value created and distributed? Who creates and distributes value, and how? What value is created and distributed? The report will be based on an empirical analysis of these cases.

The process is led by the UNDP Bratislava Regional Center and involves a regional GIM Advisory Board composed of institutions such as Business for Social Responsibility,  UNIDO, SNV Netherlands Development Organization, EuropeAid, International Academy of Business, OECD,  Cambridge University, Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, International Business Leaders Forum, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Russian Microfinance Center, European Foundation for Management Development, and Kozminski University.
