CAROLINA ENTREPRENEURIAL INITIATIVE
“structuring Transnational Fields of Governance:
Networks, Legitimation and the Evolution of Ethical Sourcing”

Noon-1 p.m., Hamilton Hall 271 aflP
Pizza and drinks served
Social entrepreneurs have been influential in fusing social and environmental
goals with enterprise. Brand-sensitive firms are increasingly adopting voluntary
standards for environmental sustainability and decent working conditions in their
Yet as these initiatives become more popular, new questions emerge about how
competition and cooperation among standard-setting bodies plays out how actors
seek legitimacy for these increasingly prominent practices, and how new “fields”
of governance get structured at the transnational level.
Dr. Bartley will discuss his research on the growing inter-connectedness of
various “ethical sourcing” initiatives, from fair trade to sustainable forestry to fair
labor. In examining these issues, Bartley's work reveals the often unanticipated
ways in which ethical sourcing initiatives are getting institutionalized as features
of global governance, not merely labels in the marketplace.
Tim Bartley is an assistant professor of sociology at Indiana University. His
research examines the emergence of new institutional forms and the challenoes of
globalization for regulation, standard-setting and social movements His current
work looks at the evolution of “transnational private regulation ’ governino labor
and environmental conditions, the interactions between nongovernmental
organizations and firms and, in anew project, the uses and abuses of corporate
social responsibility in developing countries.
