It is the world's largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative with more than 7,300 business and non-business participants in over 130 countries. This book reviews the first ten years of the Corn pact's existence (2000-10) by presenting exclusively commissioned chapters from well-known scholars, practitioners from the business world and civil society, and Global Compact staff. They reflect on what the Global Compact has achieved, what trends it may have to respond to and what challenges are ahead. The book not only contains up-to-date reflections but also debates recent changes to the structure of the Compact, including the Communication on Progress policy, the role of Global Compact Local Networks and the role of emerging specialized initiatives.""'This timely book reviews the UN Global Compact's strengths and shortcomings over its first decade and provides helpful guidance for all committed to mainstreaming responsible business practices and achieving real change through multistakeholder initiatives.'-Mary Robinson, President of Realizing Rights: The Ethical Globalization Initiative, Former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights."" ;
