Corporate Social Responsibility as a Regulatory Discourse and Practice of Governmentality
This dissertation looks at the rise of new discourses, such as Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Social Responsibility, and how they shape and enable practices of political contestation. Specifically, it considers how they make use of neoliberal mentalities of rule to facilitate innovative governance relationships that are suited to post-national regulatory contexts. CSR is thus interrogated using a governmentality approach, which yields better understandings of the concrete phenomena while it also shows the need for a reconceptualization of how governmentality theory considers group-level and individual actors in an increasingly neoliberal and post-state environment.
