Rivers, Cheryl J. & Yany, Xoaohua (2007) Antecedents of Company Attitude to Corporate Social Responsibility in the International Environment. In Solomon, George (Ed.)

Research on corporate social responsibility (CSR) has traditionally focused on companies in the developed world. As the pace of internationalization increases, the need for scholars to study CSR in an international context is on the rise. This paper contributes to the discourse on CSR across borders by developing a framework of antecedents of company attitude to CSR at both the societal level and the firm level. Using a stakeholder perspective, we argue that company attitude to CSR varies across national borders according to the salience of variables. Testable propositions are offered for future research.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
