Stanford Center on the Legal Profession and StanfordACS present Chip Pitts: The [US] Constitution and Corporate Social Responsibility

I think there is a partial but significant overlap [between the US Constitution and CSR]...When you think about the meaning of a Constitution, the way it's a framework for business, but also a framework for values, I think you can begin seeing the relationship...I like to think of a corporation as a constitutional,...a mini form of government...I think it's important to look at...the Alien Tort Claims Statute...I'd like to look at the broader sense in which the Constitution of the US relates to what I believe is an emerging global constitution...I'd like to give a very brief example from one area,...private military contractors, which is a good example of the ways that there can be governance gaps... [refers to Talisman, Shell]
