Author: De Bettignies, Henri-Claude (editor) ; Lépineux, François (editor)INSEAD Area: Organisational Behaviour Series: Frontiers of business ethics ; 6 Publisher: Peter Lang, 2009.Language: EnglishDescription: 447 p. : Graphs/Ill. ; 23 cm.ISBN: 9783039118762Type of document: INSEAD BookBibliography/Index: Includes bibliographical references and indexAbstract: Globalization and information technology are driving the world into a new era. Is it the responsibility of business to pursue the common good - and more precisely, to participate in the construction of the global common good? This book brings together contributions from various disciplines, written by scholars who are at the forefront of this debate. It provides multiple insights into a tripartite relationship: business, globalization and the common good. It helps explain why the business sphere will probably not be in a position to ignore the common good much longer, and why this latter concept, widely ignored in today's management realm, is likely to become part of tomorrow's corporate policies and practices in the global context. Finally, this work opens up a plethora of avenues for future research, calling for the development of transdisciplinary approaches and for the elaboration of a research program embracing theoretical, empirical and spiritual perspectives to tackle this complex issue.
