Egregiousness and Boycott Intensity: Evidence from the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
Consumer boycotts are triggered by egregious events, but the literature has not distinguished the level of egregiousness from consumers’ preferences or disutility associated with a given level of egregiousness, nor has the literature studied how these two components of egregiousness affect boycott intensity. Join us for an engaging lunch time seminar with guest speaker Professor Michael Polonsky from Deakin University.
Factors Leading to Health Exclusion among African Refugees in Australia: The Case of Blood Donation
Developed countries that accept refugees are obligated, under the UN Convention for Refugees, to integrate refugees into host communities, with inclusion in the health system being pivotal. Integration programs can be difficult, as many refugees’ home countries have different health systems, they have lower health literacy, and different expectations of health services. Join us for this engaging lunch time seminar with guest speaker Professor Michael Polonsky from Deakin University, Australia.
