Regimes of risk management in corporate annual reports: a case-study of one globalizing Australian company
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-16, 15:11 authored by Hanson, DJ, White, RD
An approach to the study of the 'risks' of 'globalization' that are increasingly the focus of global protest is outlined. By enrolling a blend of Mary Douglas' cultural approach to 'risk' and Ulrich Beck's theory of the 'risk society,' it is argued that three distinct 'regimes of risk management' are evident in corporate activity. After showing that corporate annual reports are useful for analysis of those effects, the argument is tested/illustrated through a case-study of the reports of Amcor, a typically internationalizing Australian company. It is concluded that disputes over the 'risks' of 'globalization' are likely to become even more intense.
