  1. The Power of Industry Self-Regulation to Promote Responsible Labor Standards: Insights From the Chinese Toy Industry.Nick Lin-Hi & Igor Blumberg - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 143 (4):789-805.
    The provision of responsible labor standards along the entire value chain poses considerable challenges for corporations. In particular, management shortcomings and institutional deficits—which are partly related to cultural issues—frequently impede the realization of responsible business practices in emerging and developing countries. It is widely established in theory that industry self-regulation constitutes a particularly promising approach for overcoming these challenges. Nonetheless, it is still an open question as to whether industry initiatives effectively promote responsible standards in practice. This contribution aims to (...)

  • Industrial Clusters and CSR in Developing Countries: The Role of International Donor Funding.Anjum Fayyaz, Peter Lund-Thomsen & Adam Lindgreen - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 146 (3):619-637.

  • Non Sibi, Sed Omnibus: Influence of Supplier Collective Behaviour on Corporate Social Responsibility in the Bangladeshi Apparel Supply Chain.Enrico Fontana & Niklas Egels-Zandén - forthcoming - Journal of Business Ethics:1-18.
    Local supplier corporate social responsibility in developing countries represents a powerful tool to improve labour conditions. This paper pursues an inter-organizational network approach to the global value chain literature to understand the influence of suppliers’ collective behaviour on their CSR engagement. This exploratory study of 30 export-oriented and first-tier apparel suppliers in Bangladesh, a developing country, makes three relevant contributions to GVC scholarship. First, we show that suppliers are interlinked in a horizontal network that restricts unilateral CSR engagement. This is (...)
