Description

The project aims to examine to nexus between political (and corruption) assessment and corporate social responsibility, on the one hand, and host government intervention and legislative oversight, on the other. Specifically, the objectives of our project are to (inter alia):

1. Develop an integrated framework to link corruption, political risk, CSR initiatives, and stakeholder engagement with the oversight and representation functions of host country parliaments.

2. Determine if corporate anti-corruption programs and CSR activities are reactive to corruption problems and adverse stakeholder reaction, or whether, via ex-ante political risk assessment, corruption and adverse reaction to it can be anticipated and whether corporate activities, including CSR, can be designed pro-actively and strategically.

3. Provide guidance to Canadian extractives companies as to how to manage political risks and corruption.
