Abstract

The Handbook of Research on Global Corporate Citizenship identifies and fosters key interdisciplinary research on corporate citizenship and provides a framework for academic debate on corporate responsibility in a global society. Leading academics have been invited from various disciplines such as management studies, economics, sociology, legal studies and political science to evaluate the concept of corporate citizenship and to analyze the role of private business in global governance and the production of global public goods. In this chapter, Andreas Georg Scherer and Guido Palazzo briefly discuss the role of the business firm in a globalized world and point to corporate citizenship as a global challenge. Additionally, the chapter provides an overview of the content of the Handbook of Research on Global Corporate Citizenship and offers a short summary of each chapter.

Keywords: Corporate citizenship, corporate social responsibility, globalization, handbook
