The future of global corporate citizenship: towards a new theory of the firm as a political actor


Palazzo, G; Scherer, A G (2008). The future of global corporate citizenship: towards a new theory of the firm as a political actor. In: Scherer, A G; Palazzo, G. Handbook of research on global corporate citizenship. Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar, 577-590.

Abstract

In this chapter, Guido Palazzo and Andreas Georg Scherer point to future research directions on corporate citizenship. They outline topics that emerge from the discussions in the Handbook of Research on Global Corporate Citizenship and address some the open questions that are still to be solved. For example, the meaning and the limits of responsibility for the corporation, the questions evolving around a new concept of corporate politics, or the self-regulation of the corporation as seen in the debate on 'governance without government' are considered. Further, the future debate on corporate citizenship needs to address the role of leadership in this context, as well as the question of the dark sides of responsibility. In this chapter, the authors summarize new challenges and point to interesting directions for future research on global corporate citizenship.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
