Abstract: Initially, corporate social responsibility (CSR) had been a movement of businesses emphasising the willingness to behave ethically and simultaneously drawing a profit from this. Increasingly however, the topic became integrated into the broader concern of how to govern the global economy. In this article, CSR is understood as an institution of transnational governance. CSR has been exported by Western actors to production countries of the Global South. Against this background one of the questions raised revolves around the relevance of the domestic embeddedness of CSR. In Vietnam transnational corporations, development agencies of Western donor countries and international organisations have been drivers of CSR. The concept is taken up in a pragmatic way using the term in regard to varying issues, thereby emphasising the competitive advantage for the country. Until today, a public CSR policy is lacking in Vietnam, and also the responsibility within the government needs to be further clarified.
