The Handbook of Research on Global Corporate Citizenship identifies and fosters key interdisciplinary research on corporate citizenship and provides a framework for further academic debate on corporate responsibility in a global society. This exciting and important Handbook provides a unique forum to discuss the consequences of the social and political mandate of business firms and examines the implications of these consequences for the theory of the firm. Leading academics have been invited from various
disciplines such as management studies, economics, sociology, legal studies and political science to evaluate the concept of corporate citizenship and to analyze the role of private business in global governance and the production of global public goods.
The Handbook is structured in seven sections:
• theoretical perspectives on corporate citizenship
• contemporary issues and challenges of global business regulation
• actors and institutions of global business regulation
• disciplinary perspectives on corporate citizenship
• implications for management theory building
• critical perspectives on corporate citizenship
This Handbook will be a significant read for academics, postgraduate students and managers interested in the field of corporate citizenship, regulation and corporate responsibility across the social sciences.
