englischOrganisations and their establishments are often said to ‘act’ as if they were people, but to what extent does this analogy hold true? Do they act as collective actors? How does that work? Who plays what role in this respect? Can corporate actors be held to account? These philosophical questions have practical relevance in the context of firms and their establishments. In Germany, firms’ establishments are the subjects of labour law and other regulations and are called ‘Betriebe’. This volume comprises sociological and political analyses of organisations and their divisions and members, and discusses the legal and normative status of organisations as corporate actors.
