UNRISD Organizing Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility and Development

12 Aug 2003



UNRISD will hold a two-day conference entitled “Corporate Social Responsibility and Development: Towards a New Agenda?” on the 17th and 18th November 2003 in the Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland.

This conference will provide an opportunity for researchers from UN agencies, universities and NGOs to examine the relationship between CSR and development, and to debate alternative approaches and policies.

Specifically, time will be given to questioning the dominant corporate responsibility agenda and assessing the corporate regulation and accountability situation. In addition, discussions on the viability of the United Nations as a global regulatory institution for transnational corporations will also be given due attention.

This conference will be composed mainly of invitation-only participants but there will be a number of allocated seats for public participants that work in this area.
