Stakeholder Roles in the Financial Performance of Corporate Social Responsibility. Adviser: Alfie Marcus.

My dissertation examines the role of stakeholders in the performance of corporate social responsibility strategies. From stakeholder and CSR theories, I derive hypotheses predicting how CSR affects firm performance and how stakeholder characteristics moderate the CSR-financial performance relationship (Chapter 1). I test some of these hypotheses using new CSR performance data addressing weaknesses recently identified in traditional CSR measures like KLD (Chapter 2). I am developing tests of the remaining hypotheses by collecting data on the quality of interactions between firms and stakeholders and the social issues most concerning to stakeholders (Chapter 3). My work contributes to the ongoing integration of stakeholder theory and CSR research suggesting CSR performance depends on the capability to understand and tailor CSR strategies to specific stakeholder groups relevant to the firm.
