There is no legal or socially responsible action by corporations without self-management of responsibility. This study presents an innovative and realistic proposal for effective corporate self-regulation. Based on extensive fieldwork in Europe, the U.S. and Australia, Christine Parker sets out practical strategies for managers, stakeholders and regulators to build successful self-regulation management systems. The book contributes to policy debates on regulation and deregulation, corporate social responsibility and deliberative democracy from a distinct angle.
