A few posts on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

“…CSR should cease to be a subset of activities/projects within the larger corporate mission, and should become instead a guiding principle of the corporation in the exercise of its mission… one cannot deny the extent to which institutional interests drive INGO behavior, in particular the survival of the organization or of the jobs and way of life of its staff…” — The Corporate Responsibility

“The humanitarian world lacks a clear line beyond which negotiations with a donor, any donor, corporate or other, are terminated categorically on the basis of principle. This is a line that we desperately need to draw, and draw soon…” — Draw the line on Tales From the Hood

“Most (all?) of the bloggers bemoaning the evil corporation and its cynical CSR programmes are from the West, the same West which is responsible for invading other countries, all sorts of unfair trade rules, refusal to acknowledge responsibility for pushing the world to the brink of eco-catastrophe, and other assorted evilness….” — Beating up on Evil Inc — Bottom Up Thinking

“1. CSR is marketing, so the alternative is more Charlie Sheen. ….The marketing imperative leads to some discomfort with CSR. If it’s all about marketing, then it exists to promote the donor’s others goals and it will come with restrictions that serve those interests. The marketing imperative distorts the good that could otherwise be done with the same resources….” — CSR: J., Charlie Sheen, Karl Marx, and Office Space on Find What Works

Don’t forget Peter’s post on CSR on my blog: — Corporate social responsibility: sexy, sensible…self-serving? //

I left a long (and bit dramatic, but realistic) comment to this post: “The consultant’s conclusion after weeks of intense study was that the best way to ensure that women don’t fall off the career track was to have their babies later on in their career, once they were established.” … on Finding the G-spot on Tales From The Hood
