The United Nations (UN) Global Compact, an initiative of the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, is aimed at making globalisation more ‘sustainable’ and ‘inclusive’, by bringing the UN, governments, business and society together. It promoted corporate social responsibility, through dialogue and learning among the various stakeholders around the world. However, the proper implementation of the principles of the Compact remained a question, as the Compact did not have any regulatory and enforcement mechanism.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the nature, purpose, and viability of the Global Compact as an initiative, and the need for more transparency and accountability in its operation.
