This organisation was started by David in 2004 following the success of the 1st International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility. He remains the Chair of the organisation which is a body of scholars who are concerned with the Social Contract between all stakeholders in global society and consequently with the socially responsible behaviour of organisations.

The mission of the SRRNet is to promote collaborative, cross-cultural and international research on any aspect of its social responsibility agenda, to disseminate such research globally and to improve knowledge.

  • Organising the annual International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility
