Practices and Economic Impact of Corporate Social ReResponsibility (CSR) in Afghanistan
Businessmen, researchers, and policy makers are increasingly concerned with Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is clear that business behavior influences human lives and the environment in different ways, while the socio-economic environment is considered as a fundamental determinant for successful and sustainable business. Therefore, it is expected from businesses to take the responsibility of various issues aligned with their business agenda.
CSR in developing countries can be distinguished from that in developed world, by looking to its internal and external drivers and other notable characteristics of the countries and their socio-economic structures. The largest fraction of academic discussion mostly focuses on the developed world while comparatively less is known about CSR in developing countries. Therefore, this study tries to catch an overall picture of the issue in the context of developing countries with the special focus on country case of Afghanistan. This study will explore the nature and practice of ongoing CSR activities by looking to the verified claims of the CSR initiatives in Afghanistan. Furthermore, the study will deeply analyze the economic impact of the CSR in order to answer the fundamental question, whether it could be an alternative or substitute for public utility provision or not.
