Norwegian oil companies have been involved in Angola since the mid 1990s. CMI has in co-operation with A-IP initiated a new project that will analyse dimensions of CSR that are decisive factors when contracts are awarded. So far we know little about how third world countries themselves perceive CSR. What types of CSR are important from a third world perspective? The local conditions and preferences vary from country to country and are important determinants of the CSR challenges that the companies face. In fundamental ways these preferences shape the current CSR policies of foreign firms in Angola. The project will discuss the main challenges and moral dilemmas facing multinational firms with respect to CSR in Angola. Questionnaires have been distributed to government officials, oil companies and service providers and the project is ongoing.
