21201460-2 - GESTIONE ETICA D'IMPRESA (ETHICS AND ECONOMICS)

Since many years the debate on "Corporate Social Responsibility" (CSR) takes center stage for companies, institutions, consumers, labor unions, and NGOs, which consider corporations as pro-active agents for the pursuit of sustainable development intended as an enhancement of the of social, environmental and economic well-being .
The course examines principles, models, and tools concerning business ethics and sustainable development, through a triple approach that integrates three different perspectives: legal (Prof.ssa Bellisario), economic (Prof. De Muro) and managerial (Dott.ssa Di Pietro). The course aims to promote among the students the awareness about ethical issues and the ability to recognize and adopt sustainable and ethical behaviour in carrying out the managerial practices.

Programme

The course consists of three complementary modules: legal, economic and managerial. Each module provides 3 credits and constitutes a component of a single exam.

The aim of the first part – juridical – is to analyse the impact of CSR on the evolution of the sources of law and the relationship between the social and the juridical responsibility. In particular, it will deal with the following topics:
- Globalisation and the crisis of traditional law sources
- Multilevel regulation of CSR. Definition, principles and functions
- Main instruments of CSR: codes of conduct, standards
- Social rules and juridical relevance
- Complexity and alternative methods of government: soft law, self-regulation, co-regulation
- The principle of subsidiarity
- The role of ethics in the regulation of CSR
- CSR rules and enforcement. The role of legal system

The second module of the course deals with the organizational and managerial aspects related to the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility, with the aim to provide traditional and innovative tools to manage the ethical issues.
In particular this module faces the following topics:
- The CSR evolution
- Stakeholder theory
- Stakeholder Dialogue
- The CSR instruments
- Certification
- SA 8000 and Certification Process
- ISO 26000
- Social Accountability

The third module focuses on the relation between ethics, economics, and business, both in economic analysis and management. To do so, it makes three simple points. First, economics necessarily involves ethics, and economists and managers cannot engage in economic analysis and decision-making without making value judgments. Second, individuals have ethical values that shape their behavior and affect what happens in the economy as a result of their interactions. Third, ethical values are involved in evaluating how an economy is doing and in making and appraising business decisions.
