Erinch Sahan, Chief Executive of the World Fair Trade Organisation has endorsed the Best Social Innovation Paper Prize which was recently awarded to Business School student Aiden Carr for his paper entitled ‘A Comparison of Australia and New Zealand’s Approach to Mining in Indigenous Regions’.

The prize was awarded following the 3rd annual Oxford Brookes Business School Social Enterprise and Social Innovation Conference(SESI) which took place in December 2020.

The conference showcased the work of Final Year students on the BMGT 6012 SESI module, giving them the opportunity to present papers based on socially enterprising and innovative topics of their own choosing.

Erinch said: ‘Social Innovation is more important ow than ever and the WFTO is proud to support the excellent work done by Oxford Brookes students every year in their conference. This year’s paper was a perceptive exploration of the need to protect the rights of indigenous peoples and I congratulate Aiden on his fascinating paper’
