In this course, we will address both the "knowing‟ and the "doing‟ side of CSR and help you build a solid knowledge base and some fundamental skills (e.g., ethical reflection and stakeholder engagement). This knowledge will help you develop a well-informed approach to the wider social and ethical issues you will face in an international business career.

Ruggie had developed his now-famous "Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights," which provided a road map for ensuring responsible global corporate practices. The principles were unanimously endorsed by the UN and embraced and implemented by other international bodies, businesses, governments, workers’ organizations, and human rights groups, keying a revolution in corporate social responsibility.
