This article explores how corporations can work toward the reduction of violence in the societies in which they operate. It considers how well suited various corporate governance regimes are to addressing the issue of violence. The authors compare corporate governance regimes in Germany, Japan, and the United States. They conclude that democracy and peace are linked. Because, according to this argument, globalization works against democracy, it therefore theatens the sustainability of peace.
This paper was presented at the 2002 conference, Corporate Governance and Sustainable Peace, co-sponsored by the Aspen Institute and the William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan.
