This book critically examines the practice and meanings of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and how the movement has facilitated a positive and somewhat unquestioned image of the global corporation. Drawing on extensive fieldwork material collected in Ghanaian communities located around the project sites of Newmont Mining Corporation and Kinross Gold Corporation, the project employs critical discourse analysis to accentuate how mining corporations use CSR as a discursive alibi to gain legitimacy and dominance over the social order, while determining their own spheres of responsibility and accountability. Hiding behind such notions as `social licence to operate,' corporations are enacted as entities that are morally conscious and socially responsible. Yet, this volume examines how this enactment is contested in host communities through corporate citizenship, gendered perspectives, and how global CSR norms institutionalize unaccountability.
