Welling Governments and societies around the world are increasingly focused on intractable social issues: There is an accelerating demand for sustainability.
In this context, expectations for business accountability are rising, and the social contract between business and government is under scrutiny and in some cases under attack in markets and countries around the world. At the same time, new technologies and new models of collaboration between business, government and civil society are emerging.
Through a series of readings, cases and speakers, this introductory minicourse is designed to give students an integrated perspective on the unique roles which government and business play in society, the sources of authority for, and limits to, those responsibilities, and the ways in which the traditional roles and organizational models are being questioned and changed.

We use a number of frameworks for analyzing cross-sector collaboration, in order to identify the range of challenges that confront business and non-profit partners over the life-cycle of a partnership.
Throughout, we embrace the larger question of how differences among partners may or may not drive learning and transformation of the partners themselves, and how to approach this analysis. The minicourse is motivated by current debates regarding the role of firms in society.
It takes a global perspective on corporate responsibility and stakeholder management, paying particular attention to the challenges that firms face in managing collaboration with social sector actors across boundaries of both markets and cultures.
The cases and readings selected aim to develop an appreciation of innovative partnership models and how they link firm, society, and public interests.
Readings and class discussion seek to develop an appreciation of the range of viewpoints that might be expressed by different actors — from the business manager, to the non-profit manager, the social entrepreneur, and the public sector actor.
Overall, the minicourse seeks to develop a better understanding of the risks and challenges that are characteristic of cross-sector collaboration, especially as partnerships reach globally.
