Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Corporations today enjoy tremendous social (as well as economic) power, as they shape the quality of our working lives, our choices as consumers, our natural environment and even our rights as citizens. Major transnational corporations in particular influence – and frequently constrain – the actions of elected governments. Such power has unsurprisingly been matched by increasing calls for greater corporate social responsibility. This module aims to foster awareness and understanding of movements towards corporate social responsibility, nationally, in Europe and globally.
