The Visible Hand of Consultants in the Construction of Markets for Virtue

Despite the resurgence of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), little is known about the social construction of CSR markets. This paper looks at the visible hand of management consultants in the creation of markets for virtue. It sheds light on three distinctive roles played by CSR consultants: as social and environmental issues translators, market boundary negotiators, and responsive regulation enactors. These roles clarify the regulative dynamics underlying CSR commodification and advance our understanding of consultancy work in the CSR domain.
