Graduate Instructor

This class will provide an introduction to the broad, multi-disciplinary research field of corporate social responsibility (CSR), as well as the closely related study of business and human rights (B&HR). Students will become acquainted with the main academic debates and questions in the CSR/B&HR field, and will learn to apply findings from that research to real-world policy challenges for businesses, civil society activists, and state regulators. Students will also have the opportunity to engage directly with policymakers and leading academics in the field, in order to better understand the real-life challenges of working in the CSR/B&HR space.
