Four Years On: Taking Stock of India's Mandatory CSR Legislation

With the five-year anniversary of India's mandatory Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) law on the horizon, The Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics is hosting a two-day workshop with the central goal of taking stock of the legislation.

Although the legislation has inspired much theoretical debate, actual evaluations to date have focused narrowly on individual companies, asking whether or not they are increasing their CSR allocations. This workshop aims to expand the analytical framework to assess the legislation, particularly its impact, focusing on both the philanthropy and corporate responsibility landscapes. It brings together academics and practitioners from India who are deeply involved in India's CSR developments with U.S.-based CSR experts from outside of Duke. We plan to analyze the legislation from a conceptual, empirical and policy perspective.

More information and the workshop agenda will be posted closer to the date. If you have questions or would like to RSVP, please email Suzanne Katzenstein:

This workshop is made possible with the generous funding of the Duke India Initiative.
