5.1 Business in Society - Society in Business
Complex societal challenges also known as grand challenges such as urban mobility, air pollution, climate change, and pandemics give rise to multi-actor collaboration, mainly because complex challenges cannot be solved by one single entity or sector (Pope & Lewis, 2008, Leite & Bengtson, 2017). Hence, it is vital to understand how collaboration between public, private, and civil-society spheres can result in more effective collaborative actions while promoting societal transformation. Thus, we believe that an examination of key actors, resources, and activities in the construction of cross-sector collaborations are very timely in the management domain.
