divestment, Grand Valley State University, JP Morgan Chase


Disinvestment, or more commonly referred to as divestment, is “the withdrawal of capital from a country or corporation.”1 This term came about in the 1980s when referring to countries and companies withdrawing capital and investments with the apartheid South African government. Divestment is most commonly seen as an act that happens between countries, but it can also be seen on a more local level. This paper will explore divestment as a whole and more specifically a case of divestment from JP Morgan Chase by Grand Valley State University.
