Corporate social responsibility : the corporate governance of the 21st century
Kluwer Law International, 2005

K1327.C675 2005

A collection of essays by jurists, businesspeople, and academics specialized in the field of corporate social responsibility, the goal of this title is to seek a cohesive and durable set of principles that can contribute to a cleaner environment and a better society while respecting and protecting the interests of all stakeholders. The authors approach this subject from a variety of perspectives: the role of corporate social responsibility in corporate governance; the legal enforceability of corporate social responsibility rules; the impact of international human rights standards; corporate social responsibility as part of corporate DNA ; choice of corporate social responsibility strategy defensive or offensive; the need for fair competition between developing country exporters; the prospects for international social protection for workers; the enforcement of minimal standards in remote locations; the active search for eco-efficient solutions; the corporate assumption of human rights responsibilities; and the legal weight of codes of conduct; and finally the role of the lawyer in corporate social responsibility.

In order to offer a description and analysis of the management regime outlined in the 1997 National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act, this book describes the National Wildlife Refuge System and its legal history; offers a detailed breakdown of the 1997 act; considers individual refuges and specific issues that apply to only certain refuges; discusses oil and gas development in refuges; and offers observations about how well the refuge system law resolves historic tensions and achieves modern conservation goals. It also has a separate chapter examines the special rules governing refuges in Alaska and considers the contentious debate over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
