Abstract

This study contributes to the international corporate social responsibility (CSR) literature and emerging market multinationals research by examining the influence of dual institutional embeddedness on home country CSR engagement in the understudied context of Indian multinational enterprises (MNEs). Specifically, we study the role of internationalization, depth of involvement in stringent CSR contexts, and implementation of mandatory CSR regulation in the home country on the domestic CSR engagement of Indian MNEs. Our results indicate that heterogeneous institutional pressures experienced by firms embedded in dual institutional contexts encourage greater home country CSR engagement.
