A growing number
of states are regulating the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of
domestic multinational corporations relating to overseas subsidiaries
and suppliers. Jette Steen Knudsen presents a new framework for
analysing government–CSR relations: direct and indirect policies for
CSR. Arguing that existing research on CSR regulation fails to address
the growing role of the state in shaping the international practices of
multinational corporations, she provides insight into the CSR issues
that are addressed by government policies. Drawing on case studies,
Knudsen analyses three key examples of CSR: non-financial reporting,
ethical trade and tax transparency in extractive industries.

The Dynamics of International Punishment, an attempt will be made to identify the current dead ends and, hopefully, a few fresh departures.
