A special issue of Administrative Sciences (ISSN 2076-3387).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2013).
Interests: regulation; corporate political strategy; reputation
The realm of firm public affairs is extremely broad and complex. Issues ranging from stakeholder relations, issues management, political participation, strategy and agenda setting are among the wide range of issues that pose a variety of questions regarding firm interactions with external organizations. In addition such questions may have different, unique answers depending on context and global perspective. The special issue, accordingly, seeks original research from a broad and diverse set of perspectives that seeks to address questions dealing with how organizations, public or private, interact with external actors including, among others, stakeholder groups, media outlets, regulatory organizations and political actors. Submissions can, for instance, explore the tools organizations apply to set specific agendas as well as the strategies formulated and implemented to manage specific issues. Within the realm of politics potential topics may include exploring the interface between public and private organizations as well as how firms implement strategies to deal with public sector organizations.
