CSR and Social Solidarity Economy: Exploring Shared Responsibilities

by Anna Kristinna N. Palomo

This paper reviews the evolution of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) globally and within the Philippines.  It discusses the contradictory nature of CSR and looks how CSR and Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) can be harmonized through shared responsibilities in building social enterprises, local economies and sustainable communities; adherence to global human rights and labor standards; and shifting to corporate social accountability.
