Historic Corporate Responsibility
During the last years, historic injustices have been on top of the public agenda revolving around the question of how to deal with difficult pasts. This applies to
governments but also to corporations. We aim at addressing this trend of historic corporate responsibility. We examine corporations as intergenerational moral agents, introduce the problem of historic complicity, and propose a concept of historic corporate responsibility.
