Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is intimately related to culture and ethics of the country in which the company is located. It is difficult to define “culture.” It is a combination of values, belief, and morality law in a society. Society is a group of people who follow common set of values and norms. Usually individuals in a society are bounded with specific religion. This bondage depends on nature of the religion (e.g., Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam). The norms are inherent within the values which determine such items as individual freedom, democracy, women’s freedom, social justice, and collective responsibility. Sometimes culture and religion also determine the formation and break down of nation states. India-Pakistan and Rwanda-Burundi are examples. Social structure depends on religious values and occupational system.
