Institutional level antecedents and corporate social responsibility adoption interactions: Insights from emerging economies

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • International business scholars emphases and urge for significant research on institutional level antecedents

    and CSR adoption practices among emerging economies both from macro and mezzo directions, due to limited

    attention given to the emerging economies in regard to social and environmental practices worldwide. We

    employed economic growth, international trade, culture and rule of law as institutional level antecedents and

    examined using their influence on CSR adoption practices both from developed-emerging economy contexts and

    also from emerging economy context separately. We developed our arguments based on institutional theory in

    order to examine the hypotheses. Our sample size includes 83 economies data for five consecutive years. Our

    results evidenced that three institutional level antecedents (international trade, culture and rule of law) have

    significant positive influence on CSR adoption practices among emerging economies, while economic growth of

    nation failed to produce positive influence on CSR adoption practices. Theoretical and empirical prescription we

    arrived here is emerging economy face different pressures to conform with in order to adoption CSR adoption

    practices.
