Sample text

Corporations can have a civic identity Whereas many accounts of business organizations of the nineteenth century present Marx’s images of industrial misery and Dickens’ tales of sharp practice, there was also a tradition of industrial paternalism or industrial philanthropy. In some cases, industrial paternalism was underpinned by religious convictions of the company owners and in others this was expressly linked with the interests of the company (Cannon 1994). Industrial philanthropy was both built upon the genuine social roots of the business and as a compensation for the apparent lack of big business’ community orientation.

As Norman and Néron (2008: 18) argue, citizenship can also be interpreted as a ‘locus of solidarity’ and it is exactly here, where the civic identity of corporations, for better or for worse, becomes a feature of similarity with individual citizens. We will also examine this line of reasoning in more detail in Chapter 5. Corporations have a distinct functional identity Earlier in this section we discussed the legal identity of corporations and concluded that companies can be regarded as de facto citizens in the way that they are treated as legal persons.

Secondly, corporations participate in governing by sharing in the administration of individual citizens’ rights, both within companies and, more broadly, within the boundaries of companies’ external economic relations. We will discuss this further in Chapter 4. g. g. in continuing partnerships with social and political organizations, in membership of business coalitions for business citizenship). Evidence of institution-building is taken as concomitant of serious engagement within the polity and thus points to corporate engagement in governing clearly beyond traditional philanthropy (Moon 1995).
