History, Politics & Society
Organized Hypocrisy is the disconnect between talk, decision-making, and action by multiple actors and is evident in our daily lives and part of our DNA. We cannot ignore or avoid it. It occurs globally in international politics, within a nation-state by its government, and by corporate and government organizations. Significant scandals are connected to organized hypocrisy, such as the VW and Enron scandals, and it is in international climate change discussions, nation-state elections, and proven to be evident in renowned organizations such as the African Union, UNICEF, and the World Bank.
This book provides an in-depth understanding of organized hypocrisy by breaking down the concept and its many components. Intriguing and interesting case studies provide evidence of the prevalence and reasons for organized hypocrisy. The case studies cover climate change, foreign policy and arms control, state-building, government corruption, BREXIT, membership to the EU, human rights, Enron corporate reporting, General Electric silence, VW defective cars, the African Union, World Bank, and much more. This book demonstrates that organized hypocrisy is being used strategically across the globe and is part of our daily lives and, essentially, our DNA.
