    Der Beitrag beabsichtigt, die politische Dimension von CSR zu beleuchten, indem der Wandel der Position der Europaeischen Kommission hinsichtlich CSR zwischen 2001 und 2006 als Ergebnis politischer Prozesse innerhalb einer „issue arena“ analysiert und interpretiert wird. Dabei wird auf schriftliche Dokumente der wichtigsten Akteure (EU-Kommission, EU-Parlament, EU-Rat, Interessensverbaende der Wirtschaft und zivilgesellschaftliche CSR-Plattformen) sowie auf Interviews mit hochrangigen VertreterInnen dieser Institutionen (durchgefuehrt im Fruehling 2008) zurueckgegriffen. (This contribution intends to shed light on the political dimension of CSR. We will analyze the change of the European Commission’s position on CSR between 2001 and 2006 and interpret the outcome as a political process within an ‘issue arena’. The analysis is based on written documents from the most important players (European Commission, European Parliament, the European Council, advocacy groups and lobbies for industry and civil society CSR platforms) as well as interviews with high ranking representatives of these institutions (conducted in the spring of 2008).)
