(p.53) 3 Global Corporate Citizenship Examined
The Constitutionalization of the Global Corporate Sphere?

Grahame F. Thompson

Oxford University Press

Here, the analysis moves on to consider what global corporate citizenship (GCC) means, and how it is related to constitutionalization. It looks at what type of companies claim corporate citizenship and from where they emanate. It provides a matrix system for classifying companies in terms of their attitudes towards GCC. It investigates the arenas and institutions that are promoting and monitoring GCC (the UN Global Compact, WEF, the US Chamber of Commerce, etc.). It deals with the current conceptions of GCC and differentiates the approach adopted in the book from these. It then discusses the idea of the persona of the corporate citizen and how this is constructed. This chapter contains empirical detail as well as conceptual clarification.
