Carmine S., . & De Marchi, V. (2022). Reviewing Paradox Theory in Corporate Sustainability Toward a Systems Perspective. Journal of Business Ethics


In this paper we perform a systematic review and content analysis of the empirical literature on paradox and sustainability, offering a useful guide for researchers aiming at adopting it empirically. The analysis provides a comprehensive account of the uses and meanings of the concept, systematizing the literature in three distinct research streams around the three detected paradoxical phenomena.
