Abstract

Starting from the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the purpose of this article is to highlight some of the particularities, at Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) level, regarding: socially responsible behaviour and participation in actions related to CSR; type of CSR strategies adopted by SMEs as compared to larger firms; the motivations, benefits and constraints of the social involvement. The ultimate question refers to the existence, nature and implications of a link between the firm size and the aspects mentioned above. These aspects will be presented according to the conclusions of the previous studies conducted in this area of research, the present paper representing therefore a theoretical synthesis of the existant literature.
