In the global interconnected village that we call our planet, the recent three decades have proven to be the most significant impact on our social and moral behavior. In essence, the technological and social evaluation has created a new and changed breed of the participant named the Corporate Citizen.
Essentially the new or dynamic participant is comprised of the individual private members of the given society who enhance their participation utilizing capital or resource contribution to affect or benefit from the business transactions common to commerce-oriented societies.
The participation of corporate citizens creates advantages and disadvantages that may have far-reaching consequences on local, domestic, national, and international levels, such as the creation of jobs, increase or decrease of tax revenue, societal stability, commercial and political influence, and soft power. Hence, it becomes even more important to define at least marginal guidelines that would regulate corporate citizenship.
Ultimately, the corporate citizen is faced with challenges of integration into local, domestic, or international cultural and societal requirements that will depend on geographic and geopolitically induced necessities and those non-prescribed external influences exercised using international interactions and their intended or unintended consequences.
