For too long CSR in India had been left to non-directional, haphazard do-gooding; ‘Governance’ – the process through which decisions are taken – of CSR through the law is expected to inject greater professionalism in the full range of CSR operations.
This latest book by Kshama V Kaushik and the team at Thought Arbitrage, is a contribution to the effort to reduce some of the nebulousness that characterises CSR and bridge the gap in systemic formality between CSR and other disciplines. We expect the book to be a reference for corporates, a handbook for practitioners including NGOs and implementing partners and a resource book for academicians.
This book draws on international and national best practices, academic theories and examples from ground-level work. It is designed as a go-to publication for all facets of sustainability, both operations and governance, to improve accountability and transparency of all constituents of CSR.
