Eighteen academics, scholars and post-graduate students from Indonesia and the Netherlands have jointly published a book titled Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) in Indonesia: Legislative Developments and Case Studies.

'€œThe internationally reviewed publication provides an overview on recent developments on legislation related to CSR in Indonesia. This also provides suggestions for a further introduction of CSR in a wider legal context,'€ the Netherlands Education Support Office (Nuffic Neso Indonesia) said in a statement made available to The Jakarta Post on Monday.

It said the case studies in the book revealed the need for developing new CSR mechanisms in Indonesian companies.

The book is the result of a joint research project between Brawijaya University, Indonesia and Utrecht University, the Netherlands.

'€œBoth the project and book aim to enhance the interaction between research and teaching as well as between research and society overall,'€ said Afifah Kusumadara, one of the project initiators from Brawijaya University.

'€œThese will provide interesting learning materials for CSR courses in both countries while at the same time contributing to wider CSR debates, with many companies in both countries being involved,'€ she went on.

Nuffic Neso Indonesia, which facilitates cooperation between Indonesian and Dutch higher education institutions, has seen a growing interest from both sides to cooperate.

'€œIndonesian universities are increasingly focused on internationalization and Dutch universities have a strong interest in Indonesia,'€ said Nuffic Neso Indonesia director Mervin Bakker.

'€œThis leads to stronger collaboration in, for example, staff and student exchange, double/joint degrees and research.'€ (ebf)
