The Sullivan Principles (first pronounced in 1977) were developed as a code of conduct to be followed by companies operating in South Africa in an effort to confront the racial problems stemming from the racial segregation policies of the South African Government known as apartheid (2). This paper examines the unique demands that the Sullivan Principles place upon the corporations who are its signatories. This is a rare occurrence in corporate history where companies have been called and are attempting to change the legal/political/social framework of a country and the impact of those companies on the larger South African society. The paper also evaluates the success of the Sullivan Code thirteen years after its introduction.
