Resumo :

The issue of corporate social responsibility is gaining increasing relevance on the continent in terms of both conceptualization and prospects for the future. This is especially true because markets have begun to play a more significant role in comparison to government activity, opening up possibilities for society to structure itself better so as to take responsibility for its economic and social development. In this context, individuals and families as well as companies and other economic stakeholders must assume increased social obligations and play a greater role in guiding the development of their respective societies.
