Our Expert

Dennis Driscoll is a Visiting Professor in the Department of Management at Strathclyde Business School. He is a former Dean of the Law School at the National University of Ireland (Galway), where he taught International Law, International Human Rights, and Corporate Social Responsibility. He has also been a Visiting Professor at Hravard Univeristy and at Peking Univeristy, where, in his capacity as Raoul Wallenberg Institute Visiting Professor of Human Rights, he was the first Professor of Human Rights in the history of China. He has also been a Visiting Professor at a number of European universities. During a long teaching career, Dennis has been responsible for a number of course innovations. Two are especially noteworthy. In the early 1970s, at the University of Edinburgh, he created a course on International Human Rights, believed to be the first such course at any law school in Europe. In the mid-1990s, at the National Univeristy of Ireland (Galway), he created a course on Corporate Social Responsibility, dealing with the complete range of CSR issues—from labour issues to human rights issues to environmental concerns, and from corporate philanthropy to corporate governance to ethical business practices such as avoiding corrupt business payments—again, the first such course at any European law school.

Dennis was the director of a number of programmes at the Law School at the National University of Ireland (Galway) dealing with the legal problems of multinational companies. In 1997 the president of the National University of Ireland (Galway) created an Award for outstanding contribution to the success of the University. Dennis was the first academic to be honoured by the receipt of the Presidential Award.
For the past ten years, Dennis has given workshops on CSR or, more narrowly, Corporate Governance, to the staff of more than 500 companies in Europe and Asia, especially China, and, more recently, in the Middle East and Africa. He has also given over 300 lectures on international law, international human rights, environmental concerns, and corporate social responsibility in some fifteen countries worldwide, in Europe, North America and Asia. Currently, he is developing a multi-language (English, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish) training programme of approximately thirty hour– long PowerPoint presentations involving the complete range of CSR issues for use by multinational companies with their supply chains, by Governments with their senior civil servants, and by NGOs.
