This assignment provides an opportunity to think critically about the sort of complex issues that often cause conflicts between organizations and stakeholders, as well as the ways in which businesses manage them. In looking at the issue of global meat production and its impact on deforestation, we want you to apply responsible business theories to a contemporary, real-world case.
Analyze the conflict around global meat production and its link to deforestation, and then evaluate Tesco’s response to the issue from a stakeholder management perspective.
For this assignment, you need to do the following:
Tip: You will not only find useful information in the media, but also in academic, industry, and NGO sources that discuss the conflicts as well as the interests and motivations of those involved.
Tip: Using an arena approach will help you map the conflict arena and identify its various participants and their relationship to each other. Revisit the two papers on your reading list for week 3 – regarding conflicts in the tobacco industry and salmon farming. The arena approach is applied to stakeholder management in these two papers.
It is recommended that you allocate around 20% of the available word limit to the introduction and conclusion, 40% for the analysis of the conflict, and 40% for the evaluation of Tesco’s response.
