About the Authors
  • The increasing importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) means that companies must consider multi-stakeholder interests as well as the social, political, economic, environmental and developmental impact of their actions. However, the pursuit of profits by multinational corporations has led to a series of questionable corporate actions and the consequences of such practices are particularly evident in developing countries. Adefolake O. Adeyeye explores how CSR has evolved to aid the anti-corruption campaign. By examining voluntary rules applicable for curbing corruption, particularly bribery and analysing the domestic and extra-territorial laws of Nigeria, the United Kingdom and the United States for holding corporations liable for bribery, she assesses the adequacy of international law's approach towards corporate liability for bribery and explores direct corporate responsibility for international corruption. The roles of corporate governance, global governance and civil liability in curbing corporate corrupt practices are given special focus.

    • Provides a fresh perspective on avenues for eliminating corruption, especially in developing countries, which will appeal to those interested in exploring alternatives to anti-corruption campaigns, focusing on governments and governmental mechanisms
    • Offers insights into how corporate governance, global governance and international law impact corporate social responsibility and international corruption
    • Makes clear how binding and non-binding rules can curb international corruption

    'The book is written in simple but elegant terms, and is evidently the result of in-depth and painstaking research undertaken by the author across various jurisdictions. The conclusions at the end of each chapter clearly and unequivocally state the author's position on the subject matter discussed therein, and considerably enhance the reader-friendly nature of the book.' Singapore Journal of Legal Studies

    Very great piece of work! The author has shed great ideas on the CSR practices in developing countries and it is truly an enlightenment to the governments of these countries.
