This track solicits papers on the whole range of topics related to the governance of multinational corporations (MNCs), and to the social, ethical and environmental dimensions/impacts of international business. This also covers MNCs’ interactions with and responsiveness to stakeholders broadly defined (thus including e.g. shareholders, governments, employees, NGOs). We also encourage submissions on MNC responsibilities, strategies and behaviour in relation to global issues such as poverty reduction, global health, human rights, outsourcing/offshoring, climate change, disaster relief.

  • MNCs’ interactions with stakeholders (including shareholders, NGOs, governments)
  • MNCs and global issues (e.g. poverty reduction, human rights, HIV/Aids, climate change)
