Chapter Summary

The New Haven School approach to resolving problems, be they domestic or international, is to employ five intellectual [tools] tasks that allow a rational, interdisciplinary analysis. Lasswell categorized the human wants into eight values or essential human strivings: power, wealth, respect, well-being, rectitude, affection, skill, and enlightenment. Human rights activists argue that because the world is more global and multinational corporations have greater financial worth than many nation-states, human rights laws should be interpreted to apply to multinationals. This chapter explores the various definitions external stakeholders have proposed for corporate social responsibility (CSR). According to Frederiksen, the study of moral theories of CSR is a new category of investigation that focuses on the normative aspect of CSR rather than the empirical investigations concerning the relation between CSR and financial performance.
