Contemporary operational environment with all its complexities sheds different light on the notion of corporate social responsibility. Its traditional interpretations based on the dichotomy of private interest versus common good (or public interest) evolve organically into the concept whereas social responsibility carries different meanings depending on the form of the enterprise and implies the necessity to accomodate different operational areas depending on the scale of businesse's international activities or its HR practices. Growing opertional complexity and ever increased accusations that businesses engage in CSR instrumentally, call for the new research approach which would exceed a classical taxonomy of CSR answering the question of what the firms do and would attempt to look into the sphere of meaning creation in organizations in order to understand why and how the companies structure their dialogue with stakeholders.
