Description/Abstract

On the surface, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) appears to offer great promise in resolving some of the negative aspects of the capitalist business model. However, as academics we should proceed with caution and adopt a critical perspective. By presenting some evidence of the ‘state of the art’ in theory and practice, the first part of this workshop aims to place CSR ‘on trial’ and asks attendees whether CSR is actually helping us to deal with the challenges of sustainability, environmental degradation and poverty, or is it counter-productive?

Follow on discussions aim to garner a wide cross-section of opinions from across numerous tracks in order to form some new directions for research and practice.
