Corporate Social Responsibility and Human Rights: Have Ten Years of Voluntarism Worked? - Audio

About this podcast

Whilst international corporations are taken to court for complicity in human rights abuses and the trade in child labour and sweatshops is still a scourge throughout the world, this event asks whether the international approach to corporate social responsibility of the last ten years has worked. The approach of the last decade has focused primarily on voluntary measures taken by companies and enterprises, and finds expression in codes of conduct and non-binding agreements like the UN Global Compact. The CSR movement originally proposed some measures which should be legally binding on corporations, together with voluntary measures, but this was rejected for a voluntarist approach. Ten years on we can ask: has this worked?
