Corporate Social Responsibility?

In this chapter, we will discuss corporate social responsibility in ways that are particularly relevant to countries that have underperformed economically for many years. The development of a robust manufacturing sector in Nigeria is vital to reducing poverty and violent conflict. We will examine efforts made to improve the operating environment for Nigeria's manufacturing sector through interventions aimed at influencing government policy and conduct. Particular attention will be paid to business associations that represent the manufacturing sector as well as coalitions of business associations that operate in several of Nigeria's thirty-six states. Although we will briefly discuss the familiar issues of corruption and money laundering, most attention will be devoted to efforts to develop a socially responsible corporate sector and what that means in such a difficult context.

Keywords:   corporate social responsibility, Nigeria, manufacturing, corruption, poverty, business coalitions
