EIB B252: Corporate Social Responsibility in the Age of Globalization
Western firms with activities in developing countries are increasingly held responsible for a range of issues such as climate change, labor rights and human rights that have previously been seen as outside a firm’s sphere of influence. The course explores the drivers of this development as well as social implications for corporations and society. The course examines the following broad questions: What is Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)? What are some of the main drivers of this new CSR agenda? How can CSR activities best be regulated at home and abroad and by whom? What are new CSR issues and challenges?
