Corporate Social Responsibility, Private Law and Global Supply Chains

Corporate Social Responsibility, Private Law and Global Supply Chains

Corporations, Globalisation and the Law series

Andreas Rühmkorf

This insightful book demonstrates that private law makes a significant contribution to the promotion of corporate social responsibility (CSR), but that with certain changes this contribution could be better. Based on the analysis of four substantive areas (company law/corporate governance, contract law, consumer law and tort law), the book covers a full range of issues that are important for CSR. These include directors’ duties, corporate reporting, the incorporation of CSR policies into the supply chain, consumer rights and the tortious liabilities of companies.
