Publication: Book/Editorship/ReportEdited book (editorship)


Ensuring principle-driven, legally sound, and ethically acceptable behavior in the global context is not an easy task for leaders. They face the requirement of meeting the needs and expectations of a diverse set of stakeholders. They are increasingly called on to protect, preserve, and restore the resources of the environment. They are expected to improve human well-being and social equity and recognize and effectively address economic and social issues concerning equality, social justice, and human-rights protection, and have to navigate their organizations through periods of radical change, turbulence and crisis.
How should leaders in global organizations go about meeting the multiple demands of a complex global stakeholder environment? This book explores the dilemmas, paradoxes, and opportunities that leaders in global organizations of all types encounter daily and addresses how managers can and should think about and approach these complex issues in responsible and productive ways.
This book will be of interest to students and scholars across business, management, and the social sciences more broadly.
