Abstract

CSR in developed countries like that in the U.S. and U.K., models of corporate social responsibility (CSR) are relatively well defined. As the phenomenon of CSR establishes itself more globally, the question arises as to the nature of CSR in other countries. In line with this Robertson (2009), raises the following question: “Is a universal model of CSR applicable across countries or is CSR specific to country context?” In this regard, hence, the objective of this paper is to assess the specific context of Ethiopian business environment; i.e., identify the structural, systemic and other reasons that preclude the intention or practice of CSR in Ethiopia

Keywords: Corporate Social responsibility, Developing countries, Ethiopia
