For release in the Advances in Business Strategy and Competitive Advantage (ABSCA) Book Series.

Series Editor: Patricia Ordóñez de Pablos (Universidad de Oviedo, Spain)
ISSN: 2327-3429

The Advances in Business Strategy and Competitive Advantage (ABSCA) Book Series is a timely series responding to the high demand for state-of-the-art research on how business strategies are created, implemented and re-designed to meet the demands of globalized competitive markets. With a focus on local and global challenges, business opportunities and the needs of society, the ABSCA encourages scientific discourse on doing business and managing information technologies for the creation of sustainable competitive advantage.
One of the most important questions is how an ethical business is conducted in emerging markets. Governments were involved in the judgment of businesses according to certain imposed requirements and thus labeling them as ethical or unethical, legal or illegal. In this book, we are going to focus on business ethics and social responsibility in emerging market's business decision making. We aim to show how companies have dealt ethically with decisions related to investment, corporate governance, consumer behavior understanding, and leadership, etc. The important role of teaching business ethics in schools and companies and the impact of regulations on business ethics will be reported. In emerging markets social responsibility, culture, and religion do exercise a huge influence in defining business ethics. This book is regarded as an up-to-date overview of business ethics, practices, and social responsibilities in emerging markets.

An easy-reading volume that focuses on business ethics and social responsibility that can be used by researchers and practitioners to better understand emerging markets.
It includes theoretical and real case studies to help junior researchers and practitioners to understand the business practices in emerging markets.
