Developments in Corporate Governance and Responsibility
Isolationism is an approach that many governments are increasingly beginning to take, which has consequences for both ordinary citizens and businesses. The research in this sixteenth volume of Developments in Corporate Governance and Responsibility examines isolationism at global, regional and local levels around the world to analyse this impact. 

In CSR in an age of Isolationism, David Crowther and Farzana Quoquab gather contributions from academics around the world who discuss the implications of isolationism on corporate social responsibility and society itself. This is achieved by looking at a mixture of regional changes together with case studies within several industries in order to develop a theoretical understanding and analysis. 

For its contributions towards an understanding of changes which do not yet seem to be widely recognized, this book is an essential read for researchers and postgraduate students of corporate governance and responsibility.
