*********************************

Until now, most of the research on CSR has focused on developed-country 
firms, mainly from North America and Europe. However, there is 
increasing evidence that non-Western firms from emerging economies are 
as aware of CSR issues and are striving to become good corporate 
citizens. This special issue therefore aims to fill an important gap in 
our knowledge by investigating the state of CSR in a number of key 
emerging economies.

A recent OECD-commissioned study by one of the contributors to this 
special issue, Jeremy Baskin, demonstrates that CSR has been embraced 
by firms in emerging economies: for instance, about 53% of the assessed 
emerging-market companies publish details of their environmental 
policies and environmental management systems, compared with an average 
for high-income OECD countries of about 59%. In a few areas, 
emerging-market firms from selected countries appear to outperform 
their developed-country counterparts. For instance, Brazil has more 
small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the United Nations Global 
Compact (44 SMEs as of December 2006) than European countries such as 
the UK (31), Germany (5) or Italy (3). Similarly, the number of 
Malaysian companies involved with ISO 14001 certification was found by 
one study to be proportionately higher than that found in some 
developed countries. Even more significantly, while the term CSR may 
not have existed in their respective vocabularies, social obligations 
of firms towards employees or wider society have long been recognised 
in some societies such as Malaysia and India.

"The Journal of Corporate Citizenship" has been a pioneer in exploring 
the state of CSR in emerging economies with special issues on corporate 
citizenship in Latin America (Issue 21), corporate citizenship in 
Africa (Issue 18) and CSR in Asia (Issue 13). In contrast to these 
previous special issues, this collection does not focus on specific 
topics such as reporting or on specific companies. A key aim of this 
special issue is to investigate peculiar local influences on CSR in 
different societies, as CSR practice develops within a specific social 
context. To this end, the articles in this special issue represent 
country case studies in five emerging economies: Argentina, Mexico, 
Nigeria, Malaysia and Pakistan, along with an overview of the theme 
from Jeremy Baskin.

In contrast to much previous work, this special issue also looks not 
merely at what foreign multinational firms do in emerging economies but 
specifically looks at what indigenous firms do in terms of CSR, which 
is a neglected theme in current research.
