Corporate social responsibility - insights from South Asia
Theoretically, the research on CSR in South Asia is largely influenced by the insights produced by various frameworks of political economy, institutional, and cultural theories (in particular critical management). The geographical focus of the research largely is on India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The articles in this e-book represent three different country contexts, Afghanistan, Bhutan, and India. This e-book will not revolutionize our view on CSR in South Asia as a region but we believe that the articles, each in their own way, contribute to our ongoing discussions of CSR in this region, particularly the countries (Afghanistan, Bhutan, and India) that are addressed in the included articles. In particular, the papers on Afghanistan and Bhutan extend the geographical focus of the research as well as highlight the role of religion, institutions, state, and MNCs in shaping CSR agenda. The paper on India offers a lens to observe the intersection between CSR and Corporate Social Entrepreneurship and in this sense it identifies a new trend that may transform the role of business organizations in India.
