Abstract:

The multi-national corporation MNC may pose a threat to the security of its home nation by its very effectiveness as a transnational actor. By developing a cosmopolitan corporate structure, the MNC seeks to supports its own objectives and goals, even if these subvert those of the home government. An arrogation of power results which must be controlled. A supra-national regulatory body which provides cultural and political bonds between home and host governments as well as the MNC may help prevent MNC unilateral political activities which are inimical to the national interest.
