Transcending the Confines of Economic and Political Organization? The Misguided Metaphor of Corporate Citizenship

Business Ethics Quarterly 18 (1):35-42 (2008)

Although the critical reconceptualization of Corporate Citizenship proposed by Néron and Norman appropriately focuses on connotations that enable us to distinguish between CC and the all-inclusive notion of Corporate Social Responsibility, I argue that they fail to properly account for the misguiding potential of the features of political citizenship they propose to develop further in CC theorizing. It is concluded that the notion of CC is better dispensed with altogether, and that a reorientation on concepts that can truly transcend the boundaries of economic and political organization would benefit the field of business and society.
