Child-rights & Corporate social responsibility in China - An introduction

This paper gives an introduction to child-rights and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in China, as it relates to the work of the Centre for Child-Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility (CCRCSR). It provides an overview of child-rights at the international level and in China, as well as the CSR standards that are relevant to actors in China. Corporate Social Responsibility is a concept that revolves around the integration of social and environmental concerns in a company’s business operations. The rights of a child can be affected, both positively and negatively, in any part of the business process. The responsibility of companies towards children has its basis in legal obligations. However, going beyond the traditional approach of fundraising and charities, more far reaching commitments regarding child-rights is becoming an important part of companies's CSR strategies, also in China.
