Organisations can become conditioned by competitive pressures to narrow their goals and adopt an overly instrumental logic, stripped of any meaning beyond simple profit. The survivalist impulse is self contradictory, because it reduces longer term viability. It also reduces the organisation’s legitimacy because a narrow focus diminishes the net contribution that the organisation can make to society. The adoption of global responsibility is therefore an act of leadership, a voluntary and wilful deployment of the resources of an organization towards building sustainability.
Sustainable leadership takes responsibility for the renewal of the resources available to the organisation, rather than simply their use and waste. It sees moral authority as a resource to be built on and renewed with each act of careful and inclusive decision making. It contextualizes the organisation’s progress within the wider progress of society and takes a long term view. Sustainable leadership builds global responsibility into the culture of the organisation. The Journal of Global Responsibility (JGR) wishes to publish rigorous scholarly explorations of these themes, especially where they build the capacity of organisations and their leadership to adopt a more global responsibility
Journal of Global Responsibility publishes scholarly articles that build the kind of understanding that will lead organisations towards the adoption of a longer term focus and a more inclusive set of responsibilities. These organisations better sustain themselves and society. The journal wants to help organisations rethink themselves and to encourage them to evaluate their own progress in terms of the progress of the communities in which they operate and thus lead the entrepreneurial and creative capacity of capitalism to become a force for building common good. Global responsibility has a systems view and cares about the effects of action, so it builds both the legitimacy and stability of the system. Leaders can be supported by catalytic and innovative thinking from all the sub disciplines of management (finance and accounting, strategy and marketing, operations and human and organisational studies) as well as the more fundamental academic disciplines including philosophy, sociology, politics, history and psychology.
