A comprehensive text book with international contributions on the ethnical, legal, and cultural implications of the management of multinational corporations. Multinational companies (MNCs), operating in multiple environments, have day by day to cope with cultural, legal, and ethical differences. expanding globalization and diminishing government control thus increases moral responsibility of globally operating companies and calls for new principles for business conduct. The central issues treated in this volume are: how can corporate ethics be theoretically founded? how can corporate ethics be implemented in practice, e.g. with respect to corruption? how can MNCs integrate their goals of sustainable development and business ethics? how can religious and national traditions be accounted for? A book for students of management and business studies as well as practising managers alike.
