Political Action of Corporate Social Responsibility

Project: Externally funded project

Project Details

Description

PAROL advances knowledge of how disparate actors organize collectively in multi-stakeholder networks that seek to induce regulatory change for sustainability. The proposed research focuses in particular on collective action and managerial decision-making in engaging with corporate political activity (CPA, the direct efforts by firms to shape government policy). We approach this phenomenon from the perspective of firms’ non-market strategies and the organization of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as political activity. The project carries out a grounded and real-time study of the multi-stakeholder coalition for a CSR law, #ykkösketjuun. The project also compares the organisation of the Finnish campaign to similar CSR law campaigns and coalitions in several other countries.
