Short Term Course on Corporate Governance towards Corporate Social Responsibility

The Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur is going to conduct a Short Term Course on Corporate Governance towards Corporate Social Responsibility.

Course Date: 27th November, 2017 - 2nd December, 2017

About the Course:
Traditionally, Corporate Governance (CG) denotes the rules of business decision-making and directs the internal mechanism of companies for following those rules. It includes the customs, policies, laws and institutions that impact the way a corporation is directed, administered or controlled. Yet, in the aftermath of some corporate scandals, and with the rise of civil society campaigns against the negative impact of corporate operations on the environment, CG has emphasised issues that go beyond this traditional focus. It now touches upon corporate ethics, accountability, disclosure and reporting. As companies seek to assure regulators and investors that they are fully transparent and accountable, they have increasingly pledged their commitment to honest and fair CG principles.

Simultaneously, the impact of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) movement on the socio-legal views of corporations also reflects the evolution of corporate governance. Along with this movement, the notion of this governance has developed as a vehicle for encouraging management to consider broader ethical considerations. CSR has drawn on the dramatic progress made by companies in recent decades in balancing shareholder goals with the need to reduce externalities that influence other stakeholders. CSR joins the regulatory endeavours to make corporations more attuned to public, environmental and social needs, by pursuing CG as a framework for boards and managers to treat employees, consumers and communities.

The convergence of corporate social responsibility and corporate governance is an important issue in the corporate regulation landscape. The issue has somewhat decreased in significance in strong economies; however, in developing economies, it has contributed to significant reformation of the regulatory environment that guides corporations.

The aim of this course is to inform the participants about this convergence and train them how to deal effectively with such convergence. This course will discuss the basic tenents of corporate governance and corporate social responsibility with a particular focus on the regulatory framework necessary to coup with this convergence in a developing country perspective. After completion of this course, participants will get a clear understanding about the recent changes in traditional corporate governance framework and about the challenges and opportunities attached to corporate social responsibility regulation.
