CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIbility and Ethics
Federico II University of Naples (Italy)
Today enterprises are considered as complex systems made of several interconnected parts. They are related with the enterprise's stakeholders, not only for economic reasons but also on the social and environmental grounds. These complex relationships link the enterprise to its own local environment highlighting how firm's social function is based upon solidarity and trust. Therefore economic motives are merely the foundation of both a broader social responsibility and a more philanthropic one, linking the enterprise to the society as a whole. Accordingly enterprises are asked to go beyond creating economic value through market transactions. They are called upon to be sustainable, without depleting local resources, and to be accountable for the consequences of their actions.
This track calls scholars, and practitioners to share their visions and analytical frameworks to understand if, and how, Corporate Social Responsibility has gone beyond the Business Case for CSR in order to become a stable and needed part of today strategic management practices.
