    Institutionalizing Peace Through Commerce: Engagement or Divestment in South African and Sudan.Michelle Westermann-Behaylo - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 89 (S4):417 - 434.
    Peace through Commerce literature has discussed how business can engage in more responsible behavior in order to mitigate conflict risk and promote conflict resolution.

    Business and Human Rights.Michelle Westermann-Behaylo & Harry J. van Buren Iii - 2011 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 22:99-110.
    One domain of corporate responsibility that is receiving considerable attention is whether and to what extent corporations have human rights obligations. The United Nations, through the work of Special Representative to the Secretary-General John Ruggie, has developed a framework seeking to clarify the responsibilities of businesses related to human rights. However, this framework adopts a limited, “do no harm” expectation for corporations that fails to capture the positive role that corporations can play in this social responsibility domain.

    Towards an Organizational View of Genuine Compassion.Michelle Westermann-Behaylo, Harry J. van Buren Iii & Shawn L. Berman - 2011 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 22:111-122.
