Corporate social responsibility codes are guidelines that companies voluntarily develop and publish with the objective of showing the public their commitment to respect human rights, to improve fundamental workplace standards worldwide, and to not pollute the natural environment. These corporate codes have become a crucial element in the regulatory architecture for globally operating companies. By focusing on the characteristics of the codes, their effects on society, and their legal consequences, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of corporate codes and the law. The book develops proposals on the relation between global corporate self-regulation and the national private law systems. It uses methods of comparative law and sociological jurisprudence to argue that national private law can, and in fact should, enforce these codes as genuine legal obligations. The book formulates legal policy recommendations for English and German private law which indicate how the proposed legal enforcement could be practically realized. (Series: International Studies in the Theory of Private Law, Vol. 12) [Subject: Transnational Law, Private Law, Corporate Law, Contract Law, Tort Law, Restitution, Comparative Law]

About the Author:

Anna Beckers is Assistant Professor of Private Law and Legal Methodology at Maastricht University.

Review:

In undertaking a comparative analysis of Germany and England, the book is relevant to the civil and common law legal systems represented by the two jurisdictions. It is well expressed in a language that is accessible to non-specialist readers. Scholars and practitioners in the CSR, corporate governance, business ethics and globalisation fields will certainly find the book useful. -- Onyeka Osuji * Journal of Business Law *
