This conference aims to critically explore a variety of methods across jurisdictions and disciplines for advancing formal multinational corporation accountability and norms that would impact, advance, and entrench formal and informal global citizenship values and corporate norms – all contributing to better governance.

Holding multinational corporations accountable will require novel solutions, which will not be “one-size-fits-all” solutions, but will account for variations in national and international contexts as well as societal norms and informal institutions that perpetuate and reinforce these norms, be it public or private sector.
