Ob es um die Einführung neuer Verwaltungsstrukturen, die Diversität von Studierenden und Lehrenden, die Demokratisierung von Wissen oder die demografische Entwicklung geht – Hochschulen befinden sich beständig im Wandel. Was bedeutet Hochschulentwicklung vor diesem Hintergrund und wie lassen sich die aktuellen Herausforderungen für das Hochschulmanagement nutzen? In dem Buch diskutieren Hochschulangehörige aus verschiedenen Fakultäten und aus der Verwaltung, aber auch Studierende sowie Akteure aus Politik, Forschung und Wirtschaft, inwieweit Corporate Social Responsibilty (CSR) und Sustainable Education geeignete Konzepte für den Umgang mit diesen inneren und äußeren Veränderungen sind. Anhand von Praxisbeispielen aus namhaften privaten wie öffentlichen Hochschulen reflektieren die Autoren ihre Erfahrungen und Erkenntnisse als Stakeholder in und im Umfeld von Hochschulen. Können Hochschulen die Herausforderungen nutzen, um neue, passendere Organisationsstrukturen zu entwerfen und die Institution Hochschule weiterzuentwickeln? Wie verläuft der Weg vom kritischen Hinterfragen der Prozesse und Strukturen innerhalb der Hochschulorganisation hin zu einem besseren, nachhaltigen Hochschulmanagement und was können die verschiedenen Akteure dazu beitragen? Die Buchbeiträge liefern nicht nur Handlungsempfehlungen für das Hochschulmanagement, sondern regen auch zur Auseinandersetzung mit den Konzepten von Corporate Social Responsibilty (CSR) und Nachhaltigkeit im Kontext der Organisationsentwicklung in der Hochschule an. Damit bietet der Band auch einen Überblick zum aktuellen Stand der Diskussion – für Wissenschaftler, für Praktiker und für Experten in und außerhalb der Hochschule.

In today's global business environment it is no longer acceptable that a corporation does well simply by doing good. It is expected. With increasing pressures from stakeholders to improve the bottom line as well as to be good corporate citizens, business leaders face tough decisions. What social issues should we support? What initiatives should we develop that will do the most good for the company as well as the cause? Do we include social messages in our advertising, encourage our employees to volunteer, do we modify our business practices? How do we integrate a new initiative into current strategies? These and other challenges will continue to face future leaders. This book provides thoughtful answers to these important questions, and to many more. The book offers suggestions on how to choose among major worthy causes and also how to measure the amount of good achieved both for the recipients and the companies themselves. Of course, all is not only about challenges, there are loads of opportunities that go along with them but it’s only responsible and sustainable leaders who would be able to spot these opportunities. That is the future which awaits 21st century leaders.

What I liked in particular about the Handbook was that each chapter identified the issues within a theoretical context and then gave the historical perspective with an accurate account of the current legal position and set down clear markers on the issues likely to influence future developments in corporate responsibility. Phillip Taylor, The Barrister This book has drawn together a distinguished and international group of writers to provide a wide-ranging discussion of the responsibility of corporations to society in general, including discussion of the role of companies in promoting human rights, accomplishing sustainable development and restoring and keeping public trust . The contributors put calls for Corporate Social Responsibility into its legal framework and provide a wide range of possible solutions to perceived weaknesses in the law. The authors are to be congratulated for adhering to the editorial mandate to provide information in a succinct style which is comprehensible to the lay person as much as the well-informed . This work is an indispensable tool for anyone engaged in the globalisation debate. It gives valuable, international, multi-faceted insights on the current situation, on work-in-progress to create change and of the theoretical perspectives which inform both. Janet Dine, Queen Mary College, University of London, UK Finally a book that explores the legal considerations related to corporate responsibility, and does so from a global perspective with strong underpinnings of ethics. This book should prove a useful guide for those academics and managers interested in the historical and emerging legal framework that guides corporate decision making around responsibility. Sandra Waddock, Boston College, US This volume provides an invaluable collection of essays that consider diverse perspectives on the social responsibility of corporations. As such it provides a very satisfying and balanced combination of contributions that should be useful to any serious student either in practice or academe of the role of corporations in society. David Crowther, London Metropolitan University, UK The ever-important topic of corporate legal responsibility is deconstructed into many multifaceted components in this fascinating Handbook, which systematically examines each in turn and describes the contemporary legal position. The Research Handbook on Corporate Legal Responsibility considers general theory and basic concepts such as corporate legal personality, the doctrine of attribution, corporate governance and directors duties, and reviews the range of individuals to which corporations may be held responsible, particularly employees, suppliers, shareholders, stakeholders and women. The substantive grounds for corporate responsibility under civil and criminal law within the North American and Commonwealth jurisdictions are evaluated, and mechanisms of accountability such as novel regulatory processes (interactive regulation, codes of conduct and social reporting), risk management and the significant role of non-governmental organisations are identified. The thought-provoking chapters contained within this Handbook go on to present perspectives on topical international questions (corruption, labour standards, human rights, environmental protection and sustainable development) including an analysis of recent initiatives from several international organisations. Bringing together the work of around thirty leading academics, practitioners, campaigners and policymakers from North America, Europe and Australia, each chapter locates these issues within a theoretical context, giving an overview of its historical evolution, providing an accurate account of the current legal position and identifying policy issues likely to influence future developments.

One of the major challenges facing Sub-Saharan African organizations today is how to effectively manage their resources. Though the importance of effective management of organizational resources is generally acknowledged, published research on the theme is disappointingly scarce. This book hopes to contribute in filling the lacuna. Contributors to the volume, which is the first in a book series from African Journal of Business and Economic Research (AJBER), a peer-reviewed, triennial publication, discuss various management issues in sub-Saharan Africa such as employee motivation, job satisfaction, compensation, organizational commitment, ethics, social responsibility and export management and the interplay between these and the effective management of an organization's resources. They argue that effective management of organizational resources - whether in the public or private sector - promotes efficiency, which in turn enhances the organization's ability to compete. The contributors also offer valuable insights into why many organizations in sub-Saharan Africa are inefficiently managed and offer desiderata for overcoming such challenges. _____________________________________________________ Dr. Okpara is an associate professor of management at the College of Business at Bloomsburg University, Pennsylvania, USA where he teaches courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels in international management, human resource management, and strategic management. A widely published scholar, his contributions have appeared in many of the leading management journals and proceedings of major national and international conferences.
