Governance and Reporting in a Complex Global Environment
Claire Richards, Mary Ann Reynolds and Jesse Dillard
Global society faces challenges in the complex, inter-related
environment of the 21st Century. We question whether we, as a global
society, have existing mechanisms to meet these challenges. This paper
discusses examples that offer possible guidance. We use published
empirical work in three categories to investigate governance and
reporting in the realm of social responsibility. We use as exemplars
governmental, not-for-profit, and corporate published reports. Two
examples come from western world-view reporting, and the other
reflects the more holistic view of one group of indigenous peoples.
Keywords: Governance, Reporting, Corporate Social Responsibility
