New Directions in Business, Development and Society Research
The "New Directions in Business, Development, and Society Research" workshop at CBS offers an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to obtain an overview of some of the recent changes in the international CSR and development debate. An introduction will be given to the 2006 and 2007 publications of the International Research Network on Business, Development, and Society. This work will then be critiqued as a basis for initiating a debate about what the dominant research, policy, and practice agendas on CSR in the developing world will – and ought to – look like in 2010. Particular attention will be paid to the themes of 'business and poverty reduction', 'CSR impact assessment', 'participation and CSR', 'governance and CSR', and so-called 'Southern-centred perspectives'.
