Why is it important?

While the societal engagement of MNEs has increasingly been attracting attention of IB scholars, there is still space and scope for academic debate, and especially for empirical studies focusing on different aspects of social value creation in MNEs.


The editorial introduction to the special issue provides the broader context of twenty-first century dynamics and disruptions. It highlights how socio-ecological changes require multi-stakeholder and international cooperative governance to resolve social problems and create social value. It introduces the multinational enterprise (MNE) as a key actor in the contemporary economy, and subsequently introduces the topics, which are addressed in the papers in this special issue.
