The Social Responsibility Axis
Scientific Head : José Allouche
The social responsibility axis deals with issues of social responsibility, and is divided into three themes:
the ethics of organisations and of personnel (J. Allouche, F. de Bry, F. Noël, O. Charpateau, Claire Etienne, V. Lecourt);
the reporting of RSE information (J. Allouche, T. Wiedmann-Goiran, F. de Bry);
RSE as a regulatory process in transitional economies, in the EEC countries and China (J. Allouche, S. Mihaylova, R. Bourguignon, Li Hui, V. Krylov).
The social responsibility axis is grounded in institutional and neo-institutional theory.
From this starting-point, researchers aim to expand research perspectives on stakeholder theory, regulation theory and the new economic sociology. The aim is to recognize how social responsibility is embedded in institutions.
Research work is presented within the framework of GREGOR conferences and the RIODD/Réseau International sur l’Organisation et le Développement Durable (International Network for Organisation and sustainable development). The RSE axis organises study days in collaboration with the Professional Group GRHOS of the RHRSE Masters degree.
The majority of the researchers in the axis publish with co-authors, often from outside the IAE, confirming their status in national networks. They are members of several national and international learned societies (e.g. AGRH, AIMS, RIODD).
Researchers are also members of the reading committees for national and international reviews (ROR/Revue de l’Organisation Responsable, RGRH/Revue de Gestion des Ressources Humaines, among others).
Research collaboration takes place with a great number of colleagues from abroad. For example, the head of the axis undertook the coordination of contributors to bring out a work in two volumes that appeared in 2006 under the title Corporate Social Responsibility (Palgrave Macmillan) comprising 30 chapters written by 47 authors from Europe, Central America, North America, Australia and New Zealand.
Professor David Voguerl of the University of Berkeley, California, has been a guest speaker.
