Présentation du GRIDD-HEC

Dr. Kernaghan Webb is an Associate Professor of Law and Business at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management, and is the Founding Director of the Ryerson Institute for the Study of Corporate Social Responsibility. He has been the Special Advisor to the United Nations on Global Compact with respect to the development of the ISO 26000 social responsibility standard, and is on the Board of Transparency International Canada and Canadian Business for Social Responsibility. Prior to joining Ryerson University, Dr. Webb was the Senior Legal Policy Advisor and Chief of Research for the Office of Consumer Affairs, Industry Canada. He has written extensively on CSR, innovative regulatory approaches, including the use of voluntary codes and standards, regulatory offences, and the role and regulation of the non-governmental organization.

Based on research he is conducting, Professor Webb's presentation reviews current CSR-oriented legal disputes involving Canadian mining companies in Latin America, as a way of highlighting challenges associated with law-based approaches and opportunities for corporate social responsability (CSR) by Canadian mining firms that can go some way towards reducing the likelihood of legal issues arising with respect to their operations. CSR for the purposes of this discussion refers to proactive environnmental, social and economic practices that increase the likelihood of legal compliance and go beyond legal requirements.
