Large companies are now players on the international scene. As such, they are increasingly embroiled in issues traditionally part of international relations and diplomacy: sanctions, environmental politics, human rights and the control of strategic resources. This volume brings together experts from the corporate, political, legal and environmental sectors to examine the conflicts and dilemmas now faced by multinational companies - often most acutely by the petroleum industry - in setting ethical standards for their behaviour, where the limits imposed by governments and public opinion are unclear and changeable and exposure in the media can be merciless.
