The Institute is campaigning for realism about how the supply chain actually works in todays multi national cross border economies. It provides research to reveal the role of the supply chain and its effect on globalisation and off shoring and economies of scale. This is affecting millions around the world, and also is partly responsible for the rationale of climate change, food miles, corporate structures which are dessimating biodiversity and many other conemporary problems through lack of knowledge about how it works.
We work in the Institute for more research into realism in the construction of supply chains so that they benefit all the stakeholders within a supply chain. This includes- all people everywhere, non human species, the biosphere, and the earths physical processes.
We are fortunate to have regular speeches, guidance and inputs to our research from such people as David Rabey Director of Supply at DEFRA, Alan Fenwick Fellow of the Institute of Purchasing and Supply, Rose Bridger a specialist in Food supply chains, Jenny Jones, London Food Commision and recent Deputy Mayor of London, and Professor Grazia Iettto - Gilies Economics Professor at South Bank University and the Open University, and a specialist in International Production and International Trade Flows and the role of sourcing within that.
Miriam Kennet Institute Director is researching supply chain structural change and its economics, environmental and social effects at Keele University with Professor Andrew Dobson former head of politics at the Open University and currently Professor at SPIRE Keele University.
if you would like to contribute to this campaign, at any level or provide lobbying or undertake research in this area,at any level ( we are also taking interns) please contact us as soon as possible on firstname.lastname@example.org. As research from supply chain practitioners is very rare, if you are practitioner please do get in touch as soon as possible as we would be delighted to hear from you.
