Assesses the reality behind the “corporate social engagement (CSE)” hype in Latin America. Challenges the “MBA approach” that has dominated much of the thinking about CSE globally as inadequate for a region like Latin America and posits an alternative “corporate social engagement pyramid” as a framework for assessing CSE. Reports that many advanced Latin American companies have moved fairly far up this pyramid in ways that hold lessons for corporations everywhere. Offers a constructive critique of received wisdom about CSE and a roadmap that companies and civil society organizations in other regions can follow.
