Abstract

The paper aims at analyzing the nature of relations between Non – Governmental Organizations and International Corporations. In first instance the study concentrates on identifying the key determinants of NGO’s behaviors. The following section is a description of business environment of International Companies based on H. Deresky’s Open Systems Model. Three levels of interrelations have been mentioned, including the Operating Environment, the Host – Country Environment and the Global Environment. The basic assumption is that some of the factors influencing the decisions of NGOs can also influence the strategic and operational decisions of International Companies, as well as their development potential. On the other hand, this relation can also be observed in the opposite direction, where the factors influencing the business environment of the companies can also have some effect on important political and economic decisions of their home or host country governments. Different areas in which the discussed players can carry weight on private business organizations are being discerned in this paper. The solution proposal provides an analysis of influence of determinants of NGO’s behaviours on determinants of business environment of International Corporations with use of correlation analysis method.
