Description

Exploring the diverse ways that corporations affect the practices and structures of the global political economy, this innovative work addresses three fundamental questions: How can the corporation be most usefully conceptualized within the field of IPE? Does global governance succeed in constraining the power of multinational corporations? To what extent has the movement for corporate social responsibility been fruitful? The authors' rich, detailed contributions, covering topics ranging from environmental governance to control of the Internet, from the evolution of legal structures to issues of outsourcing, cogently reestablishes the study of the corporation as a central concern for IPE.show more
