    After having stressed corporate governance matters raised by the "new firm", which is vertically disintegrated and intensive in specific human capital, we advance that corporate social responsibility (CSR) can be useful to regulate power relationships between key productive partners of the firm. Based on the analysis of official reports of the four major French mobile phone operators, we show that CSR is voluntarily used by firms to durably ensure wealth-creative employment and subcontracting relationships, by developing formal and informal methods.
