Responsabilité sociale de l'entreprise (RSE), responsabilité éthiques et utopies, Les fondements normatifs de la RSE, Etude de la place du droit dans les organisations

Abstract : This dissertation focuses on the search for the possible normative foundations of corporate social responsibility (CSR). This is an in-depth analysis of the notion of a standard, its function as a management tool, and its limits outside any ethics.The subject is treated in a transdisciplinary manner : the theoretical contribution of management sciences is based on the empirical study of law revealing utopias, feasible or not, under CSR. Are these so-called ethical responsibilities, a new ideology, a kind of social dream which cares little for the actual steps in the construction of a new society? or are they a new power okknowledge, a project of political organization, based on the axiology of human rights? The study of the place of law in the CSR is a way to revisit many theories of organizations, including on governance, stakeholders, democracy, sustainable development, risk and responsibility. This study concludes with the need for prior compliance with the law, in the creation of the standard and use of management tools. The object of the research is at the crossroads between management and legal sciences. Nevertheless, it allows a critical reflection on the flexibility of the rule of law and regulation by standards which have become more and more soft and fuzzy, causing the privatization of the global economic system. Taking the measure of the normative changes in global governance, this dissertation proposes to overcome the challenge of conflicts of norms, by introducing a new ethic of responsibility. In France, the idea would be to design the corporate social responsibility like the legal fiction of corporate citizenship. A true extension of preventive responsibility would be born by the legal entities under their sphere of influence.
