SamenvattingThis research aims to elaborate on variance in responding to corporate abuse allegations by multinational enterprises coming from either industrialized- or emerging market home countries. Various arguments with respect to the likeliness of incurring allegations for either type of corporation can be found in the existing scientific literature; however, past studies tend to focus mainly on corporate commitment statements regarding abuses rather than actual handling of abuse allegations. This research attempts to look into the addressing of corporate abuse allegations by industrialized multinationals and emerging multinationals respectively by analyzing coded narratives based upon real life allegations taken from the Corporate Human Rights Database. Analysis of 516 allegations results in no major significant findings for a relationship between a firm’s home country’s level of development and responding to allegations, suggesting that other contextual factors might account for variance.
