|Abstract:||The objectives of this book are to: 1. Describe how CSR and OHS are executed (or not) in advanced northern countries as well as developing southern countries. There are hardly any such cogent treatments of the two concepts together taking in both advanced and developing contexts. 2. To show or demonstrate the challenges confronting the proper deployment of both notions in the African context. 3. To provide evidence to influence corporate, institutional and public policy. 4. Directly and indirectly to demonstrate how the MDGs, particularly alleviating poverty, may be attained in Africa through clear and focused attention on OHS and CSR by both State and non-State actors as well as by businesses and organisations. 5. Finally offer students, practitioners and researchers a useful resource book.|
