The course will focus upon CSR in international development and its practical implications. Starting from a discussion on what is CSR and Sustainability all about, we shall start with a clear and useful definition to help you understand the maze of terms that are being used as well as how they link to other concepts such as those defined by ISO26000, the EU, the UN Global Compact etc. The course draws upon both the course leader’s book on CSR and International Development and copies will be given to registered delegates, as well as Dr. Hopkins’ and Dr. Tom Stephen's vast experience in working with companies, Governments and the United Nations in over 120 countries around the world. The course will cover CSR strategy and how it links to practical conditions in emerging market economies with examples taken from large companies as well as small. Delegates will leave the course with a clear idea of how to implement CSR and Sustainable Development in projects and programmes from community development, to employment creating programmes to their own chosen projects.
