In Winter 2012, a new course on Corporate Social Responsibility was held for bachelor students, as part of International Business Law. Some 40 participants learned about the demand for virtue, the stakeholders, and the role of the law. Each week they wrote a short essay in English on a CSR topic, on which they received feedback. Several guests were interviewed on CSR practices by the students, College Tour style. The teachers were Alex Geert Castermans and Caspar van Woensel (Institute for Private Law).

Following the exam, Karim Abass wrote a blog on working conditions in the mushroom industry in the Netherlands. Read his blog ‘Should government ministers call for a boycott?’.

Karim Abass is currently enrolled in the second year of the bachelor program International Business Law. He is planning to study abroad and wants to focus on the law at an international level.
