Theodore Metaxas () and Maria Tsavdaridou ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The political turn of CSR is one of the dimensions of CSR that concerns many academics, policy makers, NGOs and even more politicians. The last decade this political turn in CSR is under examination especially with the recent developments in Europe in economy and politics which justify the formation of a various theoretical perspectives on the political dimension of it. The following article will discuss the implementation of CSR activities in Denmark and UK in different political time periods along with a presentation of how CSR has evolved in Greece during the period of economic crisis. The implementation of successful CSR practices through legislation, partnerships or guidelines are some of the means that will be used to describe how governments or enterprises use them in order to promote CSR. The case of Greece is a unique case study due to the difficulties that our country faces in every aspect of its everyday life but this article will designate the fact that during the last ten years different governments and the remaining Greek enterprises are still engaged in the CSR field with partnerships, laws or national plans.
