Linking Progressive Corporate Law With Progressive Social Movements
26 Pages Posted: 4 Jun 2007
This article explores how the corporate social responsibility movement can move more fully in the progressive direction. After a discussion of the five major approaches to corporate governance, the article analyzes the four existing alternative approaches to corporate law and policy, including team production theory, corporate social accountability, stakeholder theory, and corporate social responsibility.
Analysis of the corporate social responsibility movement reveals a need to define the normative and strategic goals that a progressive corporate law project ought to serve. Such defining work can not only strengthen the movement, but help it forge alliances with other progressive social movements.
