Resum

The universe of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is expanding, not only in terms of the mass, scope and diversity of corporate activity but also in terms of scholarly endeavour. Recent years have seen a surge of research contributions exploring CSR as a social and political phenomenon in the broadest sense. CSR can no longer be pigeonholed as a moral-philosophical discourse providing an ethical counterpoint to neo-classical economic theory and profit-driven forms of business economics. The meaning, significance and practical impact of CSR in areas such as environmental management and sustainability reporting, worker's rights and welfare, human rights and corruption, is dissected by researchers covering a wide array of academic disciplines, including organization studies (Crouch, 2006), management studies (Lockett, Moon & Visser, 2006), communication studies (Ziek, 2009), political science (Steurer, 2010), law (de Schutter, 2008), development studies (Utting, 2007), international relations (Blowfield, 2005), sociology (Matten & Moon, 2008), and anthropology (Sharp, 2006) - along with moral philosophy (Dubbink & Liedekerke, 2009) and, increasingly, subfields within mainstream business economics (Smith & Lenssen, 2009). As a result, CSR is emerging not only as a lofty ideal, but as a socially embedded and diverse organizational practice that engages a variety of corporate stakeholders and is affected by a variety of societal forces.
