"The Corporate Social Responsibility to eliminate Child labor?"

Marie Jensen, Rebecca Epstein & Simone Ullerup

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

This bachelor project seeks to investigate how CSR can contribute to the elimination of child labor in the developing world. It examines this through three working questions that cover all angles of the problem field. The first working question deals with the question of who holds the responsibility to fulfill human rights. Is it the government or the corporations? And what role does the civil society have? The second working question explores the case of the Danish shoe company ECCO. How does ECCO’s CSR strategy manage its stakeholders and how does it deal with the dilemmas of child labor? The last and third working question deals with the question of whether CSR can lead to development in the third world and possible future solutions for the issues of child labor. To help enlighten the above, Jeremy Moon and David Vogel’s Responsibilty Theory and Freeman’s Stakeholder Theory, will be applied.
