Perhaps the fundamental question in CSR is: What are the responsibilities of businesses and business leadership to society? Moreover, do the responsibilities of business change in times of social and political turmoil? The chapters in this book tackle several aspects of these questions with chapters on business and politics, the environment, technology, and immigration; along with broader questions about leadership, governance, and the very nature of CSR.
What are the responsibilities of businesses and business leaders to society? Moreover, do the responsibilities of business change when there are social problems or problems with other institutions? Immigration, Brexit, the election of Donald Trump, and the emergence of populism and nationalism on both sides of the Atlantic raise some ethical challenges for business leaders.
The chapters in this book tackle several aspects of these questions with chapters on business and politics, the environmental responsibilities of business, the social and political impact of technology, immigration, the impact of social turmoil on organizational leadership, and broader questions of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), leadership, and governance in times of social turmoil.
Academics and students who study CSR as well as those who study business ethics, business and society, or business and government are not the only readers who will find insight in Ethical Business Leadership in Troubling Times. Practitioners who oversee corporate CSR programs, compliance officers, and social and political philosophers and ethicists will benefit from these explorations into the complexities of business ethics.
