    Abstract

    Multinationals can impact significantly on the quality of social relations within their communities, partly through corporate citizenship projects. This book analyzes the nature and effectiveness of these projects, using theoretical and empirical insights of recent literature. It demonstrates how MNCs can build communities in developing countries.
