Introduction
Though CSR has been featured in several peer-reviewed journal articles, text books, and other academic books, nonetheless, this book is unique in providing an interpretation of CSR from emerging and advanced economies such as North America, Israel, Sweden, Australia, Finland, Germany, The Netherlands, China, Philippines, Indonesia, and India for the understanding of various CSR approaches within an interdisciplinary and global context. As global economies develop, there is an urgent need to address the development of emerging economies and how these countries are changing and developing the concept of CSR and its impact on advanced economies. CSR is meant to develop the economy, the environment, and society. CSR, today, is seen as mandatory in some countries around the world. For example, in the United States, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, title 3, dedicates an entire chapter to CSR. As such, in other parts of the world, this perspective is not as common. Therefore, this book explains the important benefits of CSR for all organizations, no matter where these organizations are located around the world – economic advantages as well as social ones.

The book commences with the establishment of a relationship between differing views of stewardship and business ethics in CSR globally. The book succeeds in revealing that CSR is more than an effective strategy. Rather, it is how society and business interact and determine each other’s future. It presents socio-cultural, political, natural environment, and economic challenges in the private and public sectors worldwide. The book also discusses global ethical problems in the field of economics, natural science, social science, international development, ethics, and management and examines the significant validity of relational ethics and challenges between business and society, providing unique and rare insights of differing case studies across sectors and industries. 

Objectives of the Book
The book is designated as a learning tool for economics, finance, business administration, management, ethics, environmental and social science as required studies and enrichment programs in universities and colleges in the academic sector, as well as in the private sector for economists, development industry and management, accounting, business administration, business and society, and corporate sustainability in both undergraduate and graduate programs. This book provides practical tools for business leaders who are faced with challenging societal constraints and consumer demands on a daily basis from differing cultures, sectors and industries. Uncertainty and empowerment are addressed diversely within global ethics, social science, and business management literature across the continent. Case Studies highlighting risk in business management examines several studies on the topic of global ethics and business management.


Target Audience
The book is mainly intended to support various business sectors and an academic audience (academics, university teachers, researchers, and post-graduate students – both Master and Doctorate levels). In addition, this book will be beneficial for public and private universities, researchers, education managers, professionals, business and education sectors.
