Session Abstract: The contribution of the corporate sector to a more sustainable world is invariably embedded within the rhetoric of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). This term, which is a cornerstone of the discussion of the private sector and its role in international development, derives from a corporate view of the world. What happens if we reverse the lens and ask communities about their experience of engagement with corporate development initiatives? We term such initiatives Corporate Community Development (CCD), which can include, for example, provision of educational scholarships, contributions to community projects and preferential employment opportunities.

This session draws from a Marsden-funded project on ‘Harnessing the power of business: the contested involvement of corporations in community development initiatives in the Pacific’. The research is being conducted by a team of social science researchers from Massey University who are specifically exploring whether the community development initiatives of mining and tourism corporations operating in Papua New Guinea and Fiji, respectively, can bring about locally-meaningful development. This session is designed to investigate this question.
