About this book

This volume provides an interdisciplinary analysis on the political role of corporations in society by using the analytical device of corporate citizenship. It questions what ideas on corporate citizenship may say about the ongoing publicization of the corporation and the implications of these developments for the public domain and welfare state.

Reviews

"The profound re-ordering of the world involves among other things a shifting and transforming role of corporations. Corporations are expected to act as citizens and indeed as governments of global society and thus claim and assume substantial political power and responsibility. This volume provides us with a rich theoretical understanding and intriguing empirical studies of the political role of corporations around the world. The Political Role of Corporate Citizens is essential reading to scholars interested in how corporations add to the transformation of the world and in the complex and classic issues of relations between state and market." - Kerstin Sahlin, Professor in Business Administration, Public Management, at Uppsala University, Sweden.
