Beskrivning av projektet
By recognizing firms as active political actors, the project 'Political Action of Corporate Social Responsibility' (PAROL) seeks to investigate how different actors organize collective action in multi-stakeholder initiatives to mobilize support for regulatory change and how organizational actors form perceptions and take decisions on political activity. In order to address this question the project carries out a grounded and real-time study of the multi-stakeholder coalition for a CSR law, #ykkösketjuun, consisting of a broad coalition of Finnish NGOs, unions and firms. The project also compares the organisation of the Finnish campaign to similar CSR law campaigns and coalitions in France, Netherlands, the UK and India. The proposed project makes scientific contributions to the political CSR literature and to the emerging literature on temporality and institutions in the neo-institutional stream of management research.
