Abstract

While the influence of the corporate sector in the process for the definition of the SDG4 agenda constitutes an under-researched area, recent developments in the sector suggest that the debate has encouraged the integration of the education field into the corporate social responsibility dynamics inaugurated by the UN Global Compact more than a decade ago. The growing engagement of the corporate sector in the SDG4 debate has been channeled by the participation of corporate actors in semi-autonomous consortia and consultation mechanisms enjoying remarkable levels of discretion - rather than by its incorporation into democratically-monitored bodies and formalized decision-making structures.
