Global Research Gateway: Trans-National Corporations (TNCs)

Trans-National Corporations (TNCs)

"Transnational Corporations exert a great deal of power in the globalized world economy. Many corporations are richer and more powerful than the states that seek to regulate them. Through mergers and acquisitions corporations have been growing very rapidly and some of the largest TNCs now have annual profits exceeding the GDPs of many low and medium income countries. It is important to explore how TNCs dominate the global economy and exert their influence over global policy making."                                                                                                              (Global Policy Forum)

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.
