Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics

General Description

Although not new in the developed part of the world, the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ethical leadership are making first steps in gaining popularity in developing countries, with Armenia being not an exception. Nowadays many Armenians can hardly explain what constitutes to be a good corporate citizen, which is quite often confused with engaging in charitable activities. It is obvious that any for-profit entity is mainly concerned with earning and accumulating wealth, but the current worldwide trend is that this is not the only determinant of their existence and long-term success. More and more businesses realize that they do not operate in a vacuum; continuous interaction with different stakeholders is critical, with serious considerations for the environment, economically vulnerable populations, and the society as a whole.

In light of the above, it is therefore paramount to raise ethical competence and integrity standards of local managers for them to succeed in today's competitive and highly demanding world. With this in mind, the given training is aimed at familiarizing the audience with the theoretical framework for corporate social responsibility and business ethics, addressing the issues of its practical application, and exploring its contributions and limitations to the society.

Members of Parliament Voting Records- 2007 till now

Legislators play a pivotal role in the functioning of a representative democracy. A large portion of the work carried out by legislators is manifested in their voting record - whether it is the totality of their record or individual votes on pieces of legislation. Voting records show what specific position an elected official takes on an issue and what role they played in either helping or preventing a bill (draft law) from being passed.

In a democracy citizens are permitted access to records showing how their legislators voted on issues presented before them. Through the publication of these voting records, citizens can analyze how their representatives are operating and be confident that policy is being designed for the public good, and that they are in line with campaign platforms and party positions. In the same vein, voting records also provide overviews of political parties’ and parliamentary factions’ activity record, which in a mixed parliamentary system such as Armenia’s are important in understanding policy trends and directions.

To ensure access for citizens, the Mass Media, local and international organizations, political representatives and other social forces to National Assembly (NA) members’ voting records, as well as to develop the skills and knowledge needed to use these records, since 2006 the Civic Development and Partnership Foundation (CDPF) has been implementing the NA Voting Record initiative.

Within this initiative CDPF has been monitoring and collecting NA voting records, imputing them into a specially developed nav.cdpf.am on-line database, where any interested person and/or organization can find interested information.

The database has a simple search system that allows users to become familiar with the voting records of NA deputies, factions and parties, as well as with statistics on deputies’ attendance during the entire session. The data is presented as a statistical report and can be used by individuals and organizations to monitor the work of elected officials, to analyze legislative changes and their consistency with pre-election promises, as well as to support various activities, researches, advocacy campaigns and lobbing activities.

In 2007, the initiative was supported by the Norwegian Government and in 2008 assistance was provided by the US Embassy in Yerevan (United States Department of State small grants) and the OSCE office in Yerevan.
Currently CDPF continues to collect and update database information as well as promote it among population and organizations.
