Reconfiguring Power Relations: The Missing Link in Sustainability Reporting
While corporations are being urged to shift to a more inclusive model of “stakeholder capitalism”, the reality is that power relations have become highly skewed in favour of particular interests, not least those of corporate or managerial elites. Lack of attention to power relations and how they need to be reconfigured is the elephant in the room when assessing how corporations perform in relation to sustainable development.
UNRISD Research and Policy Briefs aim to improve the quality of development dialogue. They situate the Institute’s research within wider social development debates, synthesize its findings and draw out issues for consideration in decision-making processes. They provide this information in a concise format that should be of use to policy makers, scholars, activists, journalists and others.
