Corporate Social Responsibility, Globalization, the Multinational Corporation, and Labor: An Unlikely Alliance

Source: Alexandra R. Harrington, Albany Law Review, Volume 75 Issue 1, 2011/2012

This article discusses the intersection between globalization, the more legally robust corporate social responsibility regimes that are being developed in relation to multinational corporate actions and actors, and the future of labor regulation. While it is easy to gloss over this intersection through pessimism based on prior corporate bad acts, there is a need to look beyond this understanding of the intersection. Accordingly, this article argues that through robust corporate social responsibility practices and international organization regulations, globalization and the rise of the multinational corporation can serve as a source of improved labor rights within both developed and developing countries.
