Conference: Globalisation of Corporate Social Responsibility and its Impacts on Corporate Governance: The Chinese Approach and International Experiences

A conference entitled “Globalisation of Corporate Social Responsibility and its Impacts on Corporate Governance: The Chinese Approach and International Experiences” will be held December 14-15, 2016 in Beijing.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has for a long time only played a minor role in law whereas it has been widely studied by, for example, management studies and political sciences. One of the main reasons for this was that CSR was traditionally considered to be purely voluntary and to be ‘above and beyond’ what companies are required to do by law. It was therefore characterised by a soft law approach. Voluntary CSR standards were, inter alia, developed by corporations, by NGOs or by international organisations.

However, recurrent reports about human rights violations in global supply chains and the actions of companies in the wake of the global financial and economic crisis have questioned the soft law approach to CSR. There is a growing realisation that law has got a role to play to ensure CSR is taken seriously.

This Forum addresses the increasing overlap between CSR and law with a particular focus on company law and corporate governance. What is the impact of CSR on company law and corporate governance and, vice versa. How do these systems impact on CSR? Do they enable, require or prevent the socially responsible conduct of companies, for example, through corporate theory, directors’ duties or disclosure laws? What is the role of shareholders in the promotion of CSR?

The Chinese experience is particularly important because of the unique legal and social systems of China. The Forum theme will ensure a sharing of ideas and experiences globally and internationally for all jurisdictions to consider core legal and social aspects of CSR.
