Abstract

Originality/value

We have studied key actors in a growing emerging market, which could advance Global Compact principles. Besides we have crafted a pedagogic and systemic prism through which values can be taught and thought. Thus, the methodological and theoretical framework facilitates subsequent empirical research, both in comparative and longitudinal ways.

Acknowledgment

My greatest gratitude goes to EAFIT who granted me time and resources to conduct this research. I also had the privilege of being nourished by the dialogues with colleagues and several groups of students, with whom we have observed the behavior of MNEs and discussed the importance of philosophical reflection in order to enrich business ethics.

On special terms I want to thank the students, Juliana Castro and Natalia Raigoza, who helped to download and keep track of the MNEs’ information publicly available on the web sites, and to Maria José Gaviria, a very dynamic and clever assistant at our school, who has served as proof reader, and to my colleague Maria Alejandra Gonzalez-Perez, who has always encouraged me to keep combining research with the rest of my activities.
