    Abstract

    The desire of oil companies operating in the Niger Delta to secure their social license to operate, and address their community development obligations, has led in recent years to the adoption of corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies and strategies. Drawing on quantitative and qualitative data collected in host communities within the Niger Delta in Nigeria, the paper compares the effectiveness of two different corporate-community involvement strategies. The evidence suggests that while the corporate-community foundation model has certain advantages over the in-house community investment model, both approaches suffer from a common shortcoming that limits the impact of oil companies' efforts on community development in their host communities. The paper concludes by exploring the implications of the research findings for corporate-community involvement in the Nigerian oil industry.
