The Desautels Centre supports doctoral, post-doctoral and early career scholars working on multi-disciplinary projects in law, business and the humanities as part of its mandate to foster rigorous analysis and study of family-run and privately-held businesses in Canada. The Centre sponsors several initiatives aimed at early career scholars through the Desautels Review and in collaboration with external partners.
Canadian Business History Association / L’association canadienne pour l’histoire des affairs
The Desautels Centre, through the Canadian Business History Association, has developed a Desautels Research Fund in Private Enterprise, History & Law. The program offers support for early career scholars to develop an academic article that takes an historical perspective on a Canadian family controlled or other private business, and considers its intersections or relationship with the law.
Desautels Review of Private Enterprise & Law
The Desautels Centre, through the Desautels Review, has founded a competition for the best paper in business law from Doctoral candidates and early career academics. Applicants are encouraged to submit a scholarly article that focuses on the integration of business, law, and the humanities as they apply to family controlled and other private enterprises. The successful applicant will have their paper published in the Desautels Review with a notation as the winning submission.
