In recent years the term corporate social responsibility (CSR) has gained prominence both in business and in the media not least because of the rise in power of the transnational corporation in an increasingly globalised world. It is one of the most debated management issues yet there is a lack of consensus on what the concept means what it entails why it should be embraced and how.This new "Ashgate Research Companion" brings together a team of scholars from around the world offering their view of the key issues in corporate social responsibility research. Each author is concerned with different aspects of CSR offering a variety of theoretical lenses and a wide range of perspectives from different countries and experiences. The companion shows the diversity of concerns which fall under the umbrella of corporate social responsibility and highlights a number of important issues for debate. It offers scholars and graduate students a valuable guide to current thinking and a comprehensive reference to this increasingly important field.
