  1. Suppliers as Stewards? Managing Social Standards in First- and Second-Tier Suppliers.Michael S. Aßländer, Julia Roloff & Dilek Zamantili Nayır - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics 139 (4):661-683.
    Buyer–supplier relationships are often framed as principal–agent relationships, based on contractual arrangements that temporarily align the goals of both parties. The underlying notion is that the relationship between buyers and suppliers is adversarial in nature and that the supplier, acting in the role of the agent, will take advantage of the principal if not sufficiently controlled. We propose that there is empirically also another type of partnership which reflects the propositions of stewardship theory. According to this theory, suppliers are motivated (...)

  • Honorableness or Beneficialness? Cicero on Natural Law, Virtues, Glory, and (Corporate) Reputation.Michael S. Aßländer - 2013 - Journal of Business Ethics 116 (4):751-767.

  • Multinational Corporate Power, Influence and Responsibility in Global Supply Chains.Stephen Chen - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 148 (2):365-374.

Drawing on three theories of power and influence from the organization and management literature—resource-dependence theory, social exchange theory and social network theory, this paper presents a conceptual framework for analysing the extent of power and influence of an MNC in a global supply chain based on a consideration of economic and non-economic exchanges and direct and indirect (...)

  • Human Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility in Developing Countries’ Industrial Clusters.Elisa Giuliani - 2016 - Journal of Business Ethics 133 (1):39-54.
    A recent preoccupation in scholarly research is the capacity of firms in developing country industrial clusters to comply with international corporate social responsibility policies and codes of conducts. This research is at an early stage and draws on several—often quite distinct—scholarly traditions. In this paper, we argue that future work in this area would benefit from a more explicit examination of the connection between cluster firms and human rights defined according to the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and subsequent (...)
