Kline, John

During the 1980s, a serious public debate erupted in the United States over whether, and how, to keep doing business in South Africa. This case study, created for the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs, asks students to decide whether today’s ever more powerful multinational corporations incur additional ethical responsibilities when operating overseas in such environments. The case is primarily intended for use in facilitating the introduction of business ethics into an international affairs curriculum.
