About the Authors
  • Global protests give the misleading impression that multinational business interests are at odds with creating a responsible and peaceful society. This book argues against this misconception and contends that businesses can actively contribute to peace within societies. Firms that promote economic development, allow external evaluation of their affairs, and build a sense of community both within the company and in the wider society can in fact make a great contribution to fostering peace.

    • Fresh understanding of the positive contributions business can make to global harmony
    • Interdisciplinary approach with relevance in both public and private contexts
    • Pragmatically links theory with existing corporate practice
