The adoption by companies of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policies is routinely characterized as voluntary. But if CSR is self-governance by business, it is self-governance that has received a firm push from external social and market forces, from forces of social accountability. Law is also playing a more significant role than the image of CSR suggests, and this legal accountability - the focus of the book - is set to increase. In the context of CSR, a new, multi-faceted, corporate accountability is emerging. This book is unique in making the relationship between law and CSR its chief focus.
