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.
