Institutional Mechanisms for Industry Self-Regulation

I'm presenting a paper that I wrote with Mike Lenox (from Duke) next weekend at a conference at Dartmouth. Our paper falls under the environmental management aspect of the conference and is titled, "Secondary Stakeholder Actions and the Selection of Firm Targets".

Institutional Mechanisms for Industry Self-Regulation: "This conference will convene scholars researching mechanisms for solving common industry problems. Examples include codes of conduct, standards, industry norms, collaborative agreements, information disclosure standards, and ratings organizations. These programs govern a wide array of domains including worker and product safety, technological compatibility, fiduciary responsibility, environmental management, advertising, broadcast media, privacy, and digital rights and other forms of
intellectual property."
