Description

This volume describes the conflicts and dilemmas faced by multinational companies in setting ethical standards for their behavior where the limits imposed by government and public opinion are changing, conflicting, or unclear and exposure to international media is swift and merciless. The perspectives of business, international relations, law, management science, and politics are presented, along with a report of discussion at a workshop held in Oslo. There is a foreword by Daniel Yergin, president of the Cambridge Energy Research Associates in Massachusetts, and an overview by John Mitchell.
