Abstract:

There are two main elements that need to be considered when analysing the development and current status of CSR in Ireland: the historical context and heritage, and the role of multinational enterprises in developing CSR.

Ireland is a country that until the current economic downturn enjoyed strong economic growth, high employment rates and stability, due mainly to a large influx of foreign direct investment. One of the factors of success behind the ‘Celtic Tiger’ was the political and economic stability that derived from the series of Partnership Talks, a unique platform for employer and employee bodies to agree with government on a series of issues ranging from employment conditions to taxes, inflation rates and other subsidies. This platform allowed business to grow within a framework that guaranteed a stable environment. The practice of CSR was quite unknown in the way it is today when, in 2000, Business in the Community Ireland was set up as a response to the need to further organise the business contribution to society, which was at the time considered outside the Partnership Talks.
