Corporations and Citizenship - Business, Value Creation, and Society

It is widely accepted that corporations have economic, legal, and even social roles. Yet the political role of corporations has yet to be fully appreciated. Corporations and Citizenship serves as a corrective by employing the concept of citizenship in order to make sense of the political dimensions of corporations. Citizenship offers a way of thinking about roles and responsibilities among members of polities and between these members and their governing institutions. Crane, Matten and Moon provide a rich and multi-faceted picture that explores three relations of citizenship – corporations as citizens, corporations as governors of citizenship, and corporations as arenas of citizenship for stakeholders – as well as three contemporary reconfigurations of citizenship – cultural (identity-based), ecological, and cosmopolitan citizenship. The book revolutionizes not only our understanding of corporations but also of citizenship as a principle of allocating power and responsibility in a political community

The Oxford Handbook of Corporate Social Responsibility

Business schools, the media, the corporate sector, governments, and non-governmental organizations have all begun to pay more attention to issues of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in recent years. These issues encompass broad questions about the changing relationship between business, society and government, environmental issues, corporate governance, the social and ethical dimensions of management, globalization, stakeholder debates, shareholder and consumer activism, changing political systems and values, and the ways in which corporations can respond to new social imperatives. This Oxford Handbook is an authoritative review of the academic research that has both prompted, and responded to, these issues. Bringing together leading experts in the area, it provides clear thinking and new perspectives on CSR and the debates around it. The Handbook is divided into seven key sections: * Introduction, * Perspectives on CSR, * Critiques of CSR, * Actors and Drivers, * Managing CSR, * CSR in Global Context, * Future Perspectives and Conclusions

Ethical Decision Making in Marketing (SAGE Series on Business Ethics)

Written from a decision-making perspective, this textbook provides students with an overview of ethical problems faced by marketing professionals and an introduction to some of the issues they encounter as they engage in ethical decision-making.

A major concern is the unwillingness to grapple with differences between people who subscribe to different ethical considerations. This is dealt with by challenging students to consider how others might view ethical situations, for example what decision rules guide them, what their religious beliefs might be and what alternative courses of action they might consider.

Marketing Ethics: Guidelines for Managers

A book on marketing ethics has long been needed. This one may not be the ultimate – what first book ever is? – but it makes an excellent start. The authors attempt at the outset to provide an intellectual foundation and then proceed to address specific ethical issues in the subareas of marketing.

In the lead article T. R. Martin, former Dean and currently Professor of Management at Marquette, does a nice job of setting the stage. He makes the obvious but essential point that business ethics is but  a subset of business ethics. He highlights the rising tide of suspicion about the ethical performance of businessmen, points out the problem of getting agreement on issues that have defied ethicists and religionists throughout the centuries, notes the inadequacy of research on the subject, discusses the possibility of teaching ethics in business schools, and ends on the hopeful note that top management seems to be showing greater interest in ethics.

Corporate Social Responsibility: Einfluss auf die Einstellung zu Unternehmen und Marken

Marken dienen den Konsumenten als Vertrauensanker, welcher besonders in Zeiten des Informations- und Angebotsüberflusses bei der Kaufentscheidung eine große Rolle spielt. Durch die Globalisierung und internationale Tätigkeit zahlreicher Unternehmen wird deren (ethisches) Verhalten und insbesondere der Auftritt in Entwicklungsländern als Nachfrager von Rohstoffen und Arbeitskräften unter dem Schlagwort Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) öffentlich diskutiert. Parallel ist bei einer wachsenden Anzahl von Personen ein erhöhtes Umwelt- und soziales Bewusstsein festzustellen und rückt bei einer nicht mehr zu vernachlässigenden Gruppe von Konsumentinnen und Konsumenten bei der Markenwahl in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses.

Die vorliegende Studie gibt eine Antwort auf die Frage, ob Corporate Social Responsibility einen Einfluss auf die Einstellung zu Unternehmen und Marken hat und einen Beitrag zur Wahrnehmung und zum Kauf von Kaffeemarken leisten kann.
