International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility


The International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ICCSR) conducts theoretically-informed, evidence-based creative and interdisciplinary research at the business-society interface.  Our empirical research embraces an ethos of knowledge co-production and stakeholder engagement.

Since its origins in 2002, the ICCSR has produced over 500 publications through numerous books, chapters, special issues and conference papers, including some 200 peer-reviewed research articles. 

We aim to produce research that matters, connecting our projects directly to 'grand challenges' facing society today, such as 'food security and poverty', 'climate change', 'modern slavery' and 'health and inequality'.
