    This Special Issue of Corporate Governance: An International Review aims to bring together scholarship on how various global social movements (GSMs) impact the practice of international corporate governance. Despite the emergence and far-reaching effects of social movements globally, the contemporary research on GSMs has developed in a fragmented manner with a prominent focus on studying bottom-up change and emergent collective action, and its concomitant contestation with business actors towards bringing about social change. During the last decade, social movements have started exerting stronger influence on international corporate governance, the democratic quality of institutions, and even shaping the environmental and social agenda for firms.

    The Special Issue is open to different theoretical perspectives and frames and seeks contributions from a wide range of methodological approaches (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed). We are interested in papers that examine the corporate governance––GSM relationship in a manner that bridges established approaches to corporate governance with innovative ways to theorize, assess and understand how corporate governance actors make sense to the new realities ushered in by GSMs. In this manner, we hope to contribute new insights on responsible governance that will have relevance for the wider CGIR audience, providing direction for both corporate governance theorists and practitioners.
