BGF to conduct research on global responsibility attitudes and activities of the business community on the invasion of Ukraine

The Boston Global Forum (BGF), Michael Dukakis Institute (MDI), and Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG) stand by the autonomy, peace, and security of Ukraine, and condemn Russia’s senseless and destructive assault on Ukraine’s territory. In early 2022, we created the “Laurel for Peace and Security in Ukraine” Initiative, with the mission of developing binding new international rules and instruments to safeguard the rights, interests, and integrity of countries that are too weak on their own to withstand aggressive hostile actions by more powerful countries.

As part of the initiative, we are conducting research on how businesses have acted in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The primary purpose of this research is to allow the global community and policymakers to learn about business behaviors in response to global events. Secondly, for the benefit of the businesses themselves, this research would provide prospective investors and business partners insights into the companies’ global responsibility attitudes and activities. Finally, we may develop a rating system to add another dimension to evaluations of corporate social responsibility and ESG practices.
