Visible Hands: Government Regulation and International Business Responsibility

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.
