Corporate social responsibility, citizenship and business sustainability 2023
Corporate social responsibility and sustainability are popular concepts, but they are often misconstrued and poorly implemented.
Business and human rights (BHR) discourse emerged as a regulatory critique to corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Against the backdrop of the increasing power, influence and control of businesses globally, but especially in the developing economies such as in Africa, this course blends theory and practical insights with an understanding of the complementary concepts of CSR, BHR and sustainability.
Join us for an six-hour course, held over two days.
