An individual or institution, or a group of individuals or institutions, with direct or indirect interest in an organization’s activities. Depending on the nature of the organization, stakeholders may include (i) *stockholders, (ii) *debenture holders, (hi) *creditors, (iv) *customers, (v) state and regulatory authorities, (vi) employees, (vii) local communities (especially where an organization is a dominant local employer or a potential polluter), and (viii) the wider public (especially when the organization operates in areas of public safety, such as transport and healthcare). Stakeholder theory contends that an organization’s network of rights and responsibilities stretches wider than is the case suggested by the rather simplistic notions of *agency theory. See also Corporate social responsibility.
