Abstract

This article is an invited response to a paper by Jones and Haigh in issue 27 of the Journal of Corporate Citizenship. We argue that their attempt to caricature our paper in the Academy of Management Review (2005) is a manifestation of widespread unease around the shifting roles of business and government. We conclude, highlighting the necessity of ongoing research into the political role of the firm.

Keywords: Corporate citizenship, government, political responsibility, institutional boundaries, monsters
