Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is designed to spotlight contemporary research on corporate social responsibility (CSR) in developing countries, with preference given to research emphasizing local or context. Previous research on CSR has been focused principally based on the western-contexts in the last 40 years. The Special Issue will, therefore, provide an opportunity for contributors to spotlight their contributions to the broad fields of business, economics, political science, law accounting, finance, marketing, supply chain, international business and management are all welcome. The following themes would be of particular interest (NB: this list is not exhaustive):

  • What are the current trends of CSR research in developing countries?
  • What are the important developments of CSR so far in developing countries?
  • What questions needed to be asked to develop fruitful future research directions on CSR in developing countries?
  • What are theoretical implications of CSR in developing countries?
  • How can CSR be specified and compared in different developing countries contexts?
  • Where can CSR research offer best practices in developing countries?
  • What are the practical and methodological challenges of conducting CSR research?
  • What are the practical challenges of implementing CSR strategy in developing countries?

The purpose of this study was to examine the role of organizational culture in helping to translate corporate social responsibility (CSR) into firm performance. We employed arguments from the CSR strategy view to highlight the effectiveness of CSR and the contingency approach to explain the vertical fit between CSR and the organizational culture in a firm. Furthermore, we examined the moderating influence of organizational culture on the CSR–firm performance linkage. The results suggest that some organizational cultures moderate the relationship between CSR and financial outcomes, and that organizational culture may play an important role in enhancing a positive relationship between CSR and firm performance.
