Developments in Corporate Governance and Responsibility
The practice of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been growing in attention, importance, significance, and acceptance in recent decades. CSR has been included in multiple debates, comments, theories, studies and research around the world. In the last decade, Ibero-America (including Brazil, Portugal, and Spain), has grown in economic terms, and corporate responsible practices have played a key role. A CSR approach in community-based experience has emerged in the last years in this region. This is due to the support of multilateral agencies that have served as a link between government, private sector and society. However, there are still many inequalities in this region. Therefore, this edited book focuses on how CSR and Corporate Governance in Ibero-America have been employed, analyzed, and examined in different sectors and scenarios (companies, NGOs, higher educational institutions, government). It does so from theoretical (theory development), conceptual, methodological, and empirical approaches. It takes a trans-regional approach unlike most research which has been focused on studying specific initiatives or experiences in a particular country.
The 14 essays in this volume examine aspects of corporate social responsibility and corporate governance in Ibero-America, exploring the relationship between organizations, business, and society. Contributors working in business, communication, and other fields in Latin America, Puerto Rico, North America, Europe, and Nigeria consider various types of business and organizations and provide theoretical perspectives on sustainability indices in Latin America, a non-strategic approach to corporate social responsibility, communication policies and practices regarding the management of corporate social responsibility, theories of corporate social responsibility in the hospitality industry, and stakeholder perceptions in the context of economic depression in Spain; empirical perspectives on social media platforms for corporate social responsibility communication, responses to corporate social responsibility appeals in non-prescription drug ads, online communication practices in Portuguese companies, the corporate social responsibility performance of Colombian companies, public relations management as a sustainable foundation in Ecuadorian organizations, and corporate social responsibility practices and programs as a key strategic element in organizational performance; and case studies of the global demand for quinoa and its impact, small and medium-sized businesses, and Brazil.
