Self-Regulation of Market Ethics
There are several mechanisms that enforce companies to refrain from unethical behaviour: 1) market competition, 2) state regulation, 3) self-regulation by a voluntary association of participants within the same profession or market who sets the ethical rules of conduct and punishes violators. Self-regulation can lead to more effective results when government regulation is lagging behind or fails to solve the problem. However, what are the conditions for effective self-regulation mechanism? We would like to develop a comprehensive theory of self-regulation of market ethics and develop its application to various industries in different countries.
Relevant topics to focus on:
- Factors of effectiveness of self-regulation
- Code of conduct for industrial or professional association
- Monitoring system of compliance with the code
- Punishment system for violators of the code
- Platforms for collecting company reviews
- Certification and licensing systems
- Rating systems of ethical behavior
- Corporate compliance systems and their certification
- Co-regulation as combination of state regulation and self-regulation
- Self-regulation in various industries
