Corporate Social Responsibility 2014 Conference Overview

The first International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility is organized with the intention of defining CSR’s territory and scope as there is no exact definition or scope available to identify and develop CSR activities further to enhance performance of businesses.

In 1970, the economist and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman published an article in The New York Times Magazine titled “The Social responsibility of business is to increase its profits”. In the article, he referred to Corporate Social Responsibility programs as “hypocritical window dressing”.

However over the past decade this perspective had been changed dramatically. As an instance more than 8000 businesses around the world have signed UN Global compact pledging to show good global citizenship in the areas of human rights, labor standards and environmental pollution. Nevertheless Government, Customers, Employees in a nutshell General Public is pushing business organizations to be a responsible corporate citizen.

The main objective of the conference is to opening platform for a local and International researchers, scholars and experts and practitioners to discuss and debate on this specific and important research area and ultimately discussion will mark new territory for CSR. Hopefully this association will trigger some new insights and ideas in these areas of research. We are looking forward to excellent contributions and presentations. Secondly conference will be providing opportunity to network with each other and share their knowledge by setting up series of activities including cultural show, networking dinner, post conference tour, discussions and one to one meetings.

Organizing committee of the 1st International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility(ICCSR) 2014 invites Researchers, Scholars, educators and industry leaders around the world to submit their full papers, working papers or abstract to take part of this conference.
