Abstract

Drawing on scholarship in a wide range of disciplines, this article examines how and where social responsibility can be accommodated within existing global strategy theory. It queries how the evolving global sociopolitical geography fundamentally alters key areas of research and what this may imply about the long-term veracity of our theories. It is argued that the same forces that have fostered the revolution in information technology are changing the fundamental meaning of place and space and with it the ability of new monitory forces to arise that put pressure on conventional modes of governance and control, particularly with respect to global institutions and multinational enterprises.
