About

This interdisciplinary Business, Human Rights Law and Corporate Social Responsibility module from The Open University UK considers how business increasingly conducts its operations with responsibility to its stakeholders and the wider society.

Overview

This Business, Human Rights Law and Corporate Social Responsibility module from The Open University UK takes a socio-legal approach when examining how this expectation is being framed in terms of corporate social responsibility and human rights and the challenges of a globalised world. The module is diverse and wide-ranging, considering the development and application of these concepts in very different business contexts such as the development of international labour standards, criminal liability (corruption and corporate manslaughter), branding and marketing, charitable foundations and a range of specialist industries through the use of case studies.

Support from your tutor

You will have a tutor with whom you can communicate by email or telephone, who will help you with the study material and mark and comment on your written work, and whom you can ask for advice and guidance.
