    Business and Human Rights in South Africa: An Analysis of Antecedents of Human Rights Due Diligence. [REVIEW]Ralph Hamann, Paresha Sinha, Farai Kapfudzaruwa & Christoph Schild - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 87 (2):453 - 473.
    The purpose of the present article is to analyse South African listed companies' public reporting in order to contribute to our understanding of how and why companies consider human rights. The empirical analysis is placed in the context of the increasing prominence of human rights as a business issue, premised in part on the activities of the United Nations (UN) Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) on human rights and business. On the basis of a content analysis of the (...)

    Strategic Responses to Grand Challenges: Why and How Corporations Build Community Resilience.Ralph Hamann, Lulamile Makaula, Gina Ziervogel, Clifford Shearing & Alan Zhang - 2020 - Journal of Business Ethics 161 (4):835-853.
    We explore why and how corporations seek to build community resilience as a strategic response to grand challenges. Based on a comparative case study analysis of four corporations strategically building community resilience in five place-based communities in South Africa, as well as three counterfactual cases, we develop a process model of corporate practices and contingent factors that explain why and how some corporations commit to community resilience building and whether they try to do so directly or indirectly. We thus help (...)

    Why Do SMEs Go Green? An Analysis of Wine Firms in South Africa.Ralph Hamann, James Smith, Pete Tashman & R. Scott Marshall - 2017 - Business and Society 56 (1):23-56.
    Studies on why small and medium enterprises engage in pro-environmental behavior suggest that managers’ environmental responsibility plays a relatively greater role than competitiveness and legitimacy-seeking. These categories of drivers are mostly considered independent of each other. Using survey data and comparative case studies of wine firms in South Africa, this study finds that managers’ environmental responsibility is indeed the key driver in a context where state regulation hardly plays any role in regulating dispersed, rural firms. However, especially proactive firms are (...)

    Distance Makes the Heart Grow Colder: MNEs’ Responses to the State Logic in African Variants of CSR.Ralph Hamann & Colin David Reddy - 2018 - Business and Society 57 (3):562-594.
    The question of how multinational enterprises respond to local corporate social responsibility expectations remains salient, also in the context of many African governments’ attempts to define and regulate business responsibilities. What determines whether MNEs respond to such local, state-driven expectations as congruent with their global commitment to CSR? Adopting an institutional logics perspective, we argue that a higher global CSR commitment will lead to higher local responsiveness when regulatory distance is low, but it will lead to lower local responsiveness when (...)
