E. Hachemi Aliouche, associate professor and director of UNH’s Rosenberg International Franchise Center (RIFC) has two research papers accepted for presentation at international, peer-reviewed annual conferences this summer.

RIFC explores and advances the understanding of franchising through academic research, education, and outreach. To further advance its mission, RIFC works with academic and industry partners in the United States and internationally.

Aliouche will present "The Franchise Model: How to Accelerate Circular Economy Implementation in the Recycling Sector" at the International Society of Franchising (ISoF) Conference in Quito, Ecuador, in June. Aliouche co-authored this research paper with Dominique Bonet-Fernandez of IPAG Business School of France.

In July, Aliouche will travel to Nice, France, for the International Research Meeting in Business and Management, where he will present "Letting Go of the Oil Addiction: Oil, Entrepreneurship and Franchising — the Case of Algeria. Aliouche co-authored this research paper with Bonet-Fernandez and Manel Guechtouli, University Aix-Marseille, France, and Widad Guechtouli, Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales-Alger, Algeria.

“I was born and raised in Algeria, so when Widad reached out to me about collaborating on research regarding Algeria’s dependency on oil industry revenue, I was pleased to partner,” Aliouche explains.
