Corporate Political Responsibility: From Theory to Action
December 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST
Companies have become increasingly powerful political players in recent decades, using their political clout to influence public policy on social, economic and environmental issues – often behind closed doors and too often, in ways that undermine the public interest. In his new book, Corporate Political Responsibility, Tom Lyon and a series of leading scholars of corporate political responsibility seek to create a new norm for responsible political behaviour by corporations. During this virtual event, contributors will discuss both this book and the path forward for researchers, activists, business leaders, and citizens who seek a future in which corporate political influence is transparent, accountable and responsible.
