The paper aims to assess the corporate social responsibility (CSR) domains in Nepalese companies and explain the active CSR activities related to concerned domain.
The study is descriptive and is based on a review of previous research findings and focus group discussion.
It has three major findings. First, there is a gradual shift from philanthropic domain of CSR to the economic domain. Second, a number of CSR activities have emerged from within the domains. Finally, some of the CSR intents are even linked to the Millennium Development Goals of the country.
This study is mainly based on qualitative analysis (focus group discussions) of the participants in three different discussion programs.
This paper is useful to academicians and companies seeking to understand what kind of CSR activities are undergoing in Nepalese companies in different domains.
This is perhaps the very first investigation of its kind in the Nepalese context.
