The Political Role of Corporate Citizens: An Interdiscplinary Approach
2013 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
In a society where the role of corporations and the state is in flux, this interdisciplinary volume explores the political role of the corporation. Drawing on cases from the global south and north the authors use the notion of a citizenship for corporations as a device for delineating and analysing the on-going publicization and politicization of corporations. What is the role of thecorporate citizen in the public domain? How does that new role transgress traditional notions of what corporations are and ought to be? And what are the implications of these developments for the welfare state and democracy at large? This book will appeal to a wide range of scholars in political science, organization and management,business and society, and political economy. Its international contributors include Paula Blomqvist, Céline Cholez, Andrew Crane, Steven Gerencser, Boris Holzer, Uwafiokun Idemudia, Dirk Matten, Jeremy Moon, Fabrizio Panozzo and Pascale Trompette.
