Corporate Social Responsibility and the Fight Against Corruption in Afghanistan

This research was undertaken to examine the opportunities for combatting corruption through private sector driven initiatives to adopt corporate social responsibility as a business model with multiple benefits for businesses, community and the government. The research finds that, while a number of formal preconditions for widespread adoption of CSR are not present in Afghanistan, efforts can and should be made to link such notions and practices as benevolence, serving the community, and honesty to most of the provisions in the CSR business model.
