University of Borås, Sweden.
2016 (English)In: European Business Review, ISSN 0955-534X, E-ISSN 1758-7107, Vol. 28, no 3, 274-284 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Purpose

The study aims to explain the role of moral disengagement in supply chain management (SCM) research and the challenges that arise if the theory is used beyond its inherent limitations.

Design/methodology/approach

Conceptual paper based on how Bandura developed and used moral disengagement.

Findings

Moral disengagement can be used validly in SCM research. The theory should not to be applied to the supply chain itself, but SCM can be seen as an environment that is part of a reciprocal exchange, which shapes human behavior.

Research limitations/implications

The paper suggests a new theory for a better understanding of business ethics, corporate social responsibility and sustainability in SCM. Furthermore, the paper outlines how the theory should be used and some challenges that remain.

Originality/value

SCM researchers have shown how to apply a theory from psychology to SCM, which could progress to several areas of the research field. The paper also highlights an inconsistency in the use of the theory and explains how it should be used in SCM research.
