“Globalisation of Corporate Social Responsibility and its Impacts on Corporate Governance: Chinese Approach and International Experience”
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has for a long time only played a minor role in law whereas it has been widely studied by, for example, management studies and political sciences. One of the main reasons for this was that CSR was traditionally considered to be purely voluntary and to be ‘above and beyond’ what companies are required to do by law. It was therefore characterised by a soft law approach. Voluntary CSR standards were, inter alia, developed by corporations, by NGOs or by international organisations. The Chinese experience is particularly important because of the unique legal and social systems of China. The Forum theme will ensure a sharing of ideas and experiences globally and internationally for all jurisdictions to consider core legal and social aspects of CSR.
