Corporate citizenship in developing countries: Conceptualisations of human-rights-based evaluative benchmarks
AbstractThis article builds upon on Crane, Matten and Moons extended view of corporate citizenship to discuss the actual and potential role of private business with regard to specific human rights in devel- oping countries. A set of analytical benchmarks will be proposed to assess corporate behaviour with regard to these rights. A number of empirical cases illustrate the applicability and constraints of these benchmarks and help to enhance corporate citizenship thinking and theory.
