Questions related to Social Responsibility
If, due to the current energy crisis, the local government lifts anti-smog restrictions, reauthorizes the burning of brown coal and waste in stoves, and thereby contributes to the deterioration of air quality, are they acting anti-socially towards the residents of the municipality?
In the context of the ignorance realized in recent years towards the beginning of the climate crisis, towards the progressive process of global warming, the negligence committed in previous years in the development of renewable energy sources and the energy crisis that is currently developing, in the country where I operate the local government is lifting anti-smog restrictions and worsening air quality is it acting anti-socially towards the residents of the municipality. These actions are in complete contradiction with the issue of achieving the goals of sustainable development, with the strategy of a pro-environmental and pro-climate economy, with the principles of green transformation of the economy, with the principles of social responsibility of the activities of public institutions, with the ethics of the standards of a public institution acting for the benefit of citizens and residents of the municipality, with the implementation of pro-social functions of public institutions, etc. In such a situation, in which local governments acting in concert with the central authorities of the state ignore the pro-social goals and principles for which they were established and for which they function, they knowingly contribute to the deterioration of the local climate and environment, deterioration of air quality and deterioration of health. In such a situation, are the next local elections and the possibility of changing the authorities only during these elections a sufficient instrument for expressing one's opinion, one's dissatisfaction with the municipal, socio-economic, environmental, climate, cultural, etc. policies pursued by local authorities? Can the activities of non-governmental organizations, associations and other organizations established from the bottom up by citizens, through which citizens point out the shortcomings and errors committed by local authorities in the framework of the municipal, socio-economic, environmental, climate, cultural policies carried out, be of great help in this regard? A particularly important problem that fosters the development of this kind of anti-social activity of local municipal authorities is, among other things, political connections with the central authorities, which implement analogous socio-economic policies with ignoring climate issues, environmental issues, sustainable development, the need to efficiently and urgently carry out a green transformation of the economy. A fundamental issue in the context of the above-described problem may be the question of political independence of local self-government authorities vis-à-vis the apparatus of the central government of the state in order to maintain high standards of care for the local community, real opportunities for pro-social activities, listening to the needs of the local community of municipal residents and the implementation of pro-social functions by local self-government authorities.
In the context of the issues outlined above, I address the following question to the esteemed community of researchers and scientists:
If, due to the current energy crisis, local authorities lift anti-smog restrictions, once again allow the burning of brown coal and waste in stoves, and thus contribute to the deterioration of air quality, are they acting anti-socially towards the residents of the municipality?
What is your opinion on this topic?
I invite everyone to join the discussion,
Thank you very much,
What are the differences of these concepts? What I am sure is that all intend to enhance students' competencies. But are there differences? Is practicum be considered as service-learning? In what ways?
What state of a country's public finances makes it possible to carry out government-financed investment programs on the basis of money printing carried out through direct purchase of Treasury bonds by the national central bank?
I ask because this kind of financing of various government social and economic programs has prevailed since the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic in the country where I operate. On the other hand, the indebtedness of the country's public finance system has been growing successively for many years, both in absolute terms and in relative terms expressed in terms of the ratio of budget deficit and public debt to GDP (for several years now). The country's possibility of direct purchase by the national central bank, i.e. the National Bank of Poland, of Treasury-issued government bonds and rollover Treasury bonds during the global financial crisis of 2008. At that time, monetary policy also changed regarding Poland's possible adoption of the euro single currency. Since the adoption of the euro single currency would have entailed the loss of the National Bank of Poland's key functions as a national central bank, i.e. first and foremost the functions of the state bank and the issuing bank, which functions of national monetary policy would have migrated to the European Central Bank. If this were to happen then the government would lose the key instrument of anti-crisis measures it has been using on a historically large scale since the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) Coronavirus pandemic, which is the ability to add domestic money and introduce this additional money (without coverage in manufactured products and services) into the economy through the above-mentioned mechanism of direct purchase of Treasury bonds by the central bank, i.e. the National Bank of Poland. Most of this additional money is introduced into the economy extra-budgetarily (it is not included in the annual state budget) through government-controlled public institutions, i.e. Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego and the Polish Development Fund. Special purpose funds are created in these institutions to finance specific government anti-crisis, pro-development, social and investment programs. When, at the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) Coronavirus pandemic, the government decided to use this anti-crisis mechanism then economists independent of the government signaled that the result would be a large increase in inflation which then occurred almost from the beginning of 2021. On the other hand, the state of the country's public finances is taken into account in the development situation at the supranational rating agencies and investment banks. Recently, the cost of servicing public debt began to rise strongly in Poland. At the end of October 2022, the yield on domestic Treasury bonds offered to foreign investors rose to as high as 8-9 percent.
This means raising the financial risks associated with the fiscal policy pursued in recent years and the growing indebtedness of the state finance system.
In view of the above, I address the following question to the esteemed community of researchers and scientists:
What is the state of the country's public finances that makes it possible to implement government-financed investment programs on the basis of money printing carried out through the direct purchase of treasury bonds by the national central bank?
What is your opinion on this issue?
I invite everyone to join the discussion,
Thank you very much,
I have been formally teaching since 2009 at the university level. Also, I have been pursuing my Ph.D. at the University of Malaya since 2018, now waiting for the final viva.
I am very passionate about teaching and always enjoy sharing my understanding with future generations. Also, my heart is whispering for the Post-Doc.
I am requesting your kind suggestions or directions, especially, regarding what should be my future plan. What is the best time to start my Post-Doc?
Various community out reach programs which have ripple effect and macro level scope which academic institutions can take up to work on project model, to be a socially relevant organization, especially in Nigeria in the present scenario.
I am working as Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning officer at International NGO working in Yemen, I would like to improve the monitoring visits report to gain more benefits and I am seeking support from expert people in this section.
Carbon emissions are usually reflected in social responsibility reports. Do they need to be put into value? Do they need an auditor? What kind of theories could be explained this?
Any arguments for or against hypothetical membership of Ukraine in the European Union would be appreciated. These comments may be used to generate future research and discussion within the graduate EU studies at my University.
"Sustainable development can be defined as progress that meets the needs of the present compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
Companies that fail to integrate social responsibility into the core of their business miss the opportunities to build organizations with high performance and resilient employees.
Human capital/culture is the fourth pillar of sustainable development since November 17, 2010 when a document is adopted calling on cities and local and regional governments around the world to (a) develop cultural policy and include the cultural dimension in all public policies b) the role of employees/human beings as creators and innovators.
Can you provide me with some reaserch ideas and topics to conclude my thesis question?
A study of 212 companies listed under the Dhaka Stock Exchange of Bangladesh found that effective implementation of Green Accounting has significantly improved the sustainable development potential of deadly polluting companies. There is a significant positive relationship between the quality of social responsibility data disclosure and the sustainable development potential of heavily polluting companies.
Links for the details:
Based on the empirical data of heavily polluting companies in Bangladesh from 2010 to 2019, this paper conducts an empirical analysis of the application effect of green accounting in the sustainable development of heavily polluting companies. Among 212 listed companies under Dhaka Stock Exchange, the study discovered that the effective implementation of green accounting has significantly improved the sustainable development capabilities of heavily polluting companies; there is a significant positive correlation between the quality of social responsibility information disclosure and the sustainable development capabilities of heavily polluting companies; the quality of social responsibility information disclosure can be positively adjusted the relationship between the implementation of green accounting and the sustainable development capabilities of heavily polluting companies.
What about your country? Wish to hear. Thanks in advance!
The considerable literature is available on the relationship but very few research i found on the students' of professional courses.
Paradigm death, shift and flip expectation theory suggest that a perfect paradigm flips to take the form of the perfect inverse opposite paradigm, and when it does that the order of political and legal loyalty flips at the same time. And when, the opposite process takes place, the inverse is expected to happen.
When the capitalism a la Adam Smith model(TM = aBc) was flipped in 1848 to take the form of the Karl Marx red socialism model(KM = Abc) the order of political and legal loyalty that existed in the pure capitalism system then was flipped to the inverse political and legal loyalty that existed in red socialism countries during the period of red socialism(1848-1991).
Yet in 1991, when red socialism fell and China flipped back to pure capitalism, China did not flip its political and legal loyalty structure to that of Adam Smith’s capitalism structure, but kept the one it had from the old red socialism era.
And this raises the question, why was China able to flip back to pure capitalism in 1991 after the fall of red socialism and still maintain intact the order of political and legal loyalty that it had before the fall?
Any ideas? Please, share them, but Please keep in mind, this is an academic question, not a political one.
The fall of red socialism in 1991 led to the flip in those countries from social responsibility to economic responsibility as the paradigm shift from red socialism to economy friendly red socialism that Karl Marx probably had in mind in the long term did not materialize.
This flip of responsibilities in 1991 led to the coming of the new members of the capitalism family, cementing for once, the two current families of pure capitalism, democratic capitalism and non-democratic capitalism.
The flip from pure capitalism to red socialism since 1848 was a flip from economic responsibility to social responsibility, which shifted the loyalty structures found in pure capitalism.
The flip back from red socialism to pure capitalism in 1991 was a flip from social responsibility to economic responsibility, which maintained the loyalty structures as they were.
Had red socialism shifted to economy friendly red socialism, then the loyalties in those countries would have shifted to the same structure of loyalty in pure capitalism countries, and authoritarian parties and leaders would have fallen as a consequence of the paradigm shift.
Hence, the loyalty structures of a system may change or may remain the same as a result of paradigm flips up and paradigm flips back or due to paradigm shifts.
Therefore, there is a link between the direction of paradigm dynamics and loyalty structures in the systems affected by sustainability or responsibility pressures, so the question:
“Democratic capitalism and non-democratic capitalism: Do they have the same political and legal loyalty structure?”
What do you think? Can you see the political and legal loyalty structure in those two systems?
Feel free to share your views.
This is an academic question, not a political one.
Think about it, the corona virus has brought the supply side and the demand side of the pro-rich growth economy in place in most countries.....
Before the virus hit a high portion of the demand side was already cash poor or short; and after the virus hit and lockdowns and stay at home policies came alone that high portion of the demand side went basically cash empty....
If the governments, safely or not, move towards bailing out the supply side of the market to set up again its pro-rich growth structure to reopen economies, they need as strong demand, but a cash empty demand can not support such a structure as it could not afford to participate in the market,,,,and the market should be expected to collapse....
However, if the government sets up a sustained direct trickle down program to give the demand side ability to pay/buy, then this can create a tricle up effect that would clear the goods and services coming from the newly revived pro-rich growth model as they would be able to participate in the market for as long as the direct trickle down is on..
Which raises the question, Will the recovery of the pro-rich growth economy need a trickle up push from a direct trickle down program?. I think yes, what do you think?
Social accountability means holding public officials and service providers to account for their actions and performance. Social responsibility is linked to personal accountability and refers to the attitudes of responsible citizens and organizations that consider the impacts of their actions on the wider community. How to embed social accountability into OBE medical curriculum formally?
Does anyone have any idea about the page limit for regular papers in FGCS? Couldn't find any information from the author's guidelines. Thanks in advance.
In my opinion as the world has already moved to the online mode of education. Internet is the future as COVID 19 has paved ways to the future generation educational model. Now future is going to be the cloud.
In development process, people believe, the out come will depends upon involevement of Target group or beneficiars. For that, what type of responsibility, we will expect from otherside.

I am looking for the literature on the trust in businesses and its role in CSR and socially responsible consumer behavior in emerging countries. I am looking forward for your feedback.
In particular, I would be interested in theories and models, which I could use for my work.
This work relates to the interplay of emotional intelligence and social responsibility.
Many thanks in advance!
The Phalanx CIWS is a computer-controlled cannon system. This system, which is deployed on many American warships, is designed at the flick of a switch to detect, track, engage, and confirm kills using self-contained radar. A human operator cannot match the performance of such a device. But the duration of its automaticity is regulated by a human operator. Will a day come when such automaticity is controlled by another automaton due to its superior performance? How many layers of automaticity should be tolerated when fighting a war? Some have suggested using block-chain computer code to better regulate autonomous systems (Husain 2017).

Accountability as a part of Sustainability is mandatory for Companies to explore their activities have clean and good governance however need strategy to improve by companies for global competition extend the value added for market reactions with better result by competitive the stoke return at the market. Earning management as a part of strategy by Companies to improve the result activities with data manipulation and legal action depend on the companies need. This is as biased if we understand about Sustainability with economics performance disclosure. If the companies disclose about earning management than will get no good reputation for this and the action will be hidden agenda from the companies.
With Climate Change and all, I will tell you what I think is a minimum needed for survival and that is: literally a completely, fully, entirely new outlook on life AND that being FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING and involving all our work-a-day pursuits -- a wholly new way of life (and "full-blown" way of action/work) and a source of wholesomeness and great actions and GOOD:
Every hour/day/week/month/year, etc. you wake up mindful, informed (and get more informed as ever needed to proceed ASAP), dedicated, and completely persistent and consistent in acting for the earth-life-dignity of your CAUSES and related CAUSES. Serious life as pursued will be nothing but your involvement and active-dedication to CAUSES (maintaining rational, workable consistencies, and AS MUCH IN ACTION as possible, to actually achieve or actualize the causes). Satisfaction will have nothing to do with "being easy-going" NOR with typical or traditional ideas (notions) of happiness, nor with any [supposedly] other way of (or toward, or for) "satisfaction" -- "rewards" of life many of you, much of the time, thought likely would come with "freedom" and "general happiness" (as historically thought about) but such will be clearly seen as blatant, flagrant, and shameful irresponsibility of old ways considered not worth even thinking about FOR ANY GOOD PURPOSE or any goal in the world (you will have plenty else to think about and with integrity and dignity AND FOR DIGNITY AND INTEGRITY)(plus, there is inherent irrationality in the old views: one way or others of expecting -- and basically even counting on -- MAGIC). BUT, now, all the old happiness/play/satisfaction/fun in-and-with any other "things" or activities will naturally and rationally and personally come to be seen as that which eliminates true dignity and integrity and any worthwhile (or even real) satisfactions -- now with you having the dignity and integrity of work on AND for your CAUSES. With this new way (for all we see for ourselves and for any decent folk we will associate with), SOON nothing else will will "do"; we will have a new way to real dignity, better understandings, and some true, real, good lasting, progressive satisfaction, and with greater loving kindness and equanimity (as we accept we do what we do and others do as their own best in the same vein). As indicated, the way is to operate (LIVE) IS ONLY in terms of CAUSES and inter-related or necessarily simultaneous or successive CAUSES. Developing and accomplishing (in action as much as possible and necessary) will be ALL for the CAUSES which will be your life -- the "all" of your life that matters or has any implications for yourself or others. And, this is also at least as all other decent human beings doing all major things of working life will know you, and that is how you will know them. This is all simply a commitment to understandings, and engaging in wholesome pursuits (which, AGAIN, will be in terms of CAUSES). The causes will be shared only as well, rationally, and wholesomely pursued through group action BUT may well be otherwise that which is done alone (individually), if that is how things are going to get done.
This is the formula for self-breeding of the species and for any real decency and for the survival of the species itself. I cannot imagine how anything else will be sufficiently adaptive; in fact, anything else breeds ignorance, confusion, chaos and irresponsibility (an easy logical and sound argument to make). (I want to live, I want humans who follow me to live; DO YOU?)
Kirchherr et al. (2017) defined Circular Economy (CE) within iteratively developed coding framework
as an economic system that replaces the ‘end-of-life’ concept with reducing, alternatively reusing, recycling and recovering materials (4R-framework) in production/distribution and consumption processes.
It operates at the micro level (products, companies, consumers), meso level (eco-industrial parks) and macro level (city, region, nation and beyond), with the aim to accomplish sustainable development, thus simultaneously creating environmental quality, economic prosperity and social equity, to the benefit of current and future generations. It is enabled by novel business models and responsible consumers.
More research on the consumer perspective could help to highlight pathways to enhance their contribution to CE.
Any such future CE research needs to be grounded in a deliberate CE conceptualization to foster cumulative knowledge development on this topic.
what is your novel suggestion on CE modeling?
As the red-skinned tribal leader says, "When the last tree dies, the last river dries, the last fish dies, mankind will realize that money cannot be renewed." Will we really understand? Do we know that "nature is not the inheritance of our ancestors, but the entrust of future generations"?
The current product of architects and urban developers will it be at one time a legacy for our future generations and they will be proud of it or will they criticize it and leave it and blame us for its future view and heritage is the beginning of a new term that is The inheritance of urban
For any given genetic disease (SCA, Huntington's), is there a way to computationally assess the probability or likelihood that future generations will contract it if someone in a family currently has it?
For example, if a hypothetical sister of mine had SCA,is there a way for me to calculate the likelihood that my children/grandchildren or her children/grandchildren will contract SCA?
Today at # SDGForumLu I listened the presentation of Christian Felber from the Economy for the Common Good initiative -ECG (www.ecogood.org), and I am impressed to know about this model, its roots, its arguments, its partners and above all its current and potential impacts.
According to ECG, we can all live well in a world in which economy is aligned with ethical values in human co-existence with other living forms. And it does not seem just a dream as there are about 30 country-chapters promoting this model and more than 2000 worldwide companies engaged on ECG practices.
I would like to invite those interested to discuss about the Common Good matrix for Human Dignity, Solidarity and Social Justice, Environmental Sustainability and Transparency and Co-determination here: https://www.ecogood.org/en/our-work/common-good-balance-sheet/
I look forward to hearing from you.

In some companies, managers increasingly take into account the expectations of employees, including the needs of employees in the development and identification of their self-realization with the company in which they work.
Such changes in personnel management are an important factor of corporate social responsibility.
On the other hand, this type of pro-social approach in personnel management usually increases its scale in the situation of low unemployment and high income of employees.
In addition, this type of pro-social approach in personnel management and good governance and good business practices should be correlated with the concept of effective development of countries operating in the model of social market economies.
In view of the above, the current question is: Does corporate social responsibility develop to a greater extent in social market economies?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.

Do you think that GRI indicators (www.globalreporting.org) will become the international standards of non-financial reporting?
These indicators are most detailed in terms of defining nonfinancial reporting on ecology, social responsibility and economics.
What is the share of accounting information (especially environmental accounting) in non-financial reporting?
Do you have any articles on this topic to share with me?
High quality education is essential to make sure that future generation of engineers, scientists and scholars are well trained and ready to work together for the betterment of mankind.
Research is actively trying to innovate an propose new tools that will be used by future generations. However, this constant flow on new technology, that will continue to increase exponentially, accelerates the progress and replaces certain tools that we currently use.
An example that is close to my field of research is serious games for functional rehabilitation. Currently we are conceiving and implementing home-based serious games for people with musculoskeletal disorders. We suppose that the current adult generation should be open to using these systems since they are well adapted to using PC's and connected objects. But will these platforms that we are developing, going to be relevant in 10 years time, when the adults are supposed to benefit from them? or will they be replaced by other concepts.
I am writing my master thesis on Carillion plc collapse and the social responsibility of the Government. It would be great to collaborate.
You refered to the article 11 of the Japanese constitution in your recent paper (The Anthropocene concept as a wake-up call for reforming democracy) . This article 11, however, still remains nothing more than a sheer ideal or cliche. We japanese have neither any Constitutional Court nor OFG. The Supreme Court is institutionally provided with the right to overrulle any law it judges as unconstitutional; But, it has rarely, if ever, excercised this right. A great majority of the Japanese voters are most nlikely, so seems to me, to acccept the concept of Future Branch powerful enough to check and contain the popular/parliamentary sovereignty. I would much appreaciate if you let me know how it is possible to 'launder' people's political preferences
Dear Colleagues, I created a Model for managing a socially responsible corporate reputation as the foundation of my study entitled Communication on corporate social responsibility and the management of responsible corporate reputation. The study has been reviewed and is due to be published. I will highly appreciate your comments on the proposed model.
Works of art are an important element of culture in the social and cultural heritage. The achievements of culture, including works of art, should be cherished for future generations, they can not be allowed to be forgotten, and unfortunately it often happens that in the era of current informational technological revolution, the development of new media, in the pursuit of modernity specific aspects of culture, tradition and art they are often interpreted only in the historical dimension.
On the other hand, new information technologies, new online media should be used to promote traditional values of culture and art. For example, websites have been created for many art and culture. Many works of art, entire collections of many museums are digitized in the form of a digital record of reproduction of works of art so as to increase the accessibility of citizens to cultural and cultural heritage.
Does this type of propagation of culture and art on the Internet should be developed?
I think so.
Do you agree with me?
Please, answer, comments.
I invite you to the discussion.
I need data (annual) on various governance indicators for India like - political stability, Voice and Accountability, Control of Corruption, law and order and economic risk. Apart from ICRG, i have found few free data in World Governance Indicators by WB. But data series starts from 1996 and i need it from 1980. Can anyone suggest me any other free data sources ?? or if any one have these data, kindly share with me.

More and more research centers operating in different countries and investigating climate change state that the progressing greenhouse effect on Earth is already a fact. As a result, the risk of increasingly frequent and increasingly dramatic climate disasters is increasing. Man has less and less time to counteract these negative processes.
It is necessary to change the development strategy based on intensifying the exploitation of the Earth's resources on the sustainable development strategy. It is necessary to develop new energy technologies based on renewable energy sources to slow down the progressing greenhouse effect of the Earth in order to reduce the risk of dramatic natural cataclysms. It is necessary to develop ecological innovations, while it may not be too late. It is necessary to save the Earth through destruction for future generations.
In view of the above, I am asking you to answer the following question: Is the greenhouse effect on Earth already objectively recognized by the climate research centers as an irreversible process?
I invite you to the discussion
When use value is perceived by contemporaries as lower than non-use value, heritage is perceived as a public or common good and its value is perceived as bequest and non-tangible. In this case, most of the society feels the need of protecting heritage for the future generations due to its historic legacy and the willingness to keep it towards future generations (Fig. 2).
The biggest challenge occurs, however, when the difference between use and non-use value of heritage is minor or difficult to identify. Considering a hypothetical piece of heritage that no-one actually likes except a narrow group of experts, the average value for the asset may be very low. The perceived benefits will be then lower than the costs of conserving it and economic logic would dictate that it is not conserved for the sake of a few people (Provins et al. 2008)
I have data for a choice experiment about investing in socially responsible projects. The investment characteristics were presented on choice cards that asked for the most preferred option and the least preferred option.

Employees are the immediate internal communities of every organization as well as its true assets; yet organizations tend to focus on social responsibilities towards the external surrounding communities. ‘Even the best of technology or best of infrastructure would not be of much use if employees do not perform up to the mark and are not satisfied with their current profiles”.
How then can organizations take up the core duty of being socially responsible to its employees?
Almost all of the present generation students are living in the world of virtual reality.
Starting from vedeo games and continued in the way of regular posting and like giving social sites, they live in a separate world.
But in the service sectors, where every penny is to be earned, how the ex-students will adjust?
In some technical professions, like medical, nurshing, civil and mechanical engineering etc., 100% concentration and practical knowledge is required everyday.
What will be the outcome of the psychological clash between the virtual world vs practical world among our future generation people?

How much you know about biomedical waste? Is it not necessary to include this in Environmental Science subject which is a compulsory subject in most of universities at graduate level study.
Is it not a good idea to include practical in EVS or project like plantation of tress and other contributions of students for controlling environmental pollution. This will create a sense of responsibility towards environment.
How far the research is being utilized for social cause? Is research given more importance than it is supposed to be given? How far these research papers, articles, letters etc. influence the society? Or is it only for matter of getting Ph Ds and further academic growth? Little bit confusing. A content which is not a worth of publishing got published and awarded Ph D in some cases. And the procedure which is taking too long for awarding the degree should be trimmed out? Your comments, opinions and suggestions please.
Environmental pollution is the biggest challenge for mankind. Do you think we can contribute to control environmental pollution? What are you doing for this.
Would you yourself refuse to be bailed out as part of your social responsibility, in the interest of justice, regardless of the law (generally, called an ass)?
