The purpose of this article1 is to analyze the different CSR public policies
adopted by European governments in order to promote responsible and sustainable
business practices. This research sets out from the initial hypothesis
of establishing, how the design and implementation of public policies promoting
CSR reveals changes in governments’ capacity for action and impact
in social and environmental issues in their relationship with businesses. We
mention that a unidirectional approach to the public policy analysis neither
gives an answer to the needs of present-day societies (responsiveness), nor
does it enable us to understand the new challenges facing social governance
in depth. As a result, it seems limited to analyze public policies from the outmoded
approach of ‘hard power.’
