Palazzo, G; Scherer, A G (2008). Corporate social responsibility, democracy, and the politicization of the corporation. Academy of Management Review, 33:773-775.

Abstract

The article refers to research by Stephen Barley (2007) and replies to criticism by Peter Edward and Hugh Willmott concerning the authors' own research on the political aspects of corporate social responsibility. The Barley study suggests that business's influence on politics can negatively impact representative democracy. The reply comments on private- and public-sector cooperation, economic theory that separates the sectors' respective activities, conditions that maintain legitimacy for the social institutions of business and government, and voluntary philanthropy.

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.
