Relationships between business, government, and society are increasingly complex, dynamic, and symbiotic. Using the business unit as a starting point, we trace its involvement and interactions with key partners as well as internal and external stakeholders (e.g., investors, employees, customers, non-governmental organizations, etc) at various sites of activity such as the marketplace, workplace, and the legislative and political arenas. We discuss the systems of accountability now required and expected of transnational corporations operating in the global marketplace. Finally, we examine several case studies selected from the Asia-Pacific in the light of the core concepts discussed in the course.
