Why is collective collaboration essential to solving some of the world’s most complex problems?

Jane Nelson, Director of the Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative at the Harvard Kennedy School, shared her perspectives on this topic after speaking at a CREATe roundtable event.

In the video, she explains how history has shown that a single, proactive multi-national corporation can make progress towards certain ethical standards. However, for significant and actual change to occur, groups of businesses, governments and civil society organizations must coalesce and work together.

In another video, Ms. Nelson explains how CREATe can be a rallying point for all these different actors on the issues of Intellectual Property (IP) protection and anti-corruption.
