In addition to contributing to the small, but fast growing, literature on CSR in emerging and developing economies around the world, this thesis draws on prior research and goes further to investigate the competitive advantage of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for transnational corporations (TNCs) in Mexico. It seeks to build a conceptual framework to understand the benefits that CSR has brought to society and corporations, investigates what is driving CSR globally and locally, analyses how global conditions unfold over local CSR, and assess how CSR is shaped by local culture, the economic and political history in Mexico.
