Numerous theoretical and empirical studies have investigated the phenomenon of corporate social responsibility in the West. Moreover, the notion of corporate social responsibility is becoming more prevalent in Afghanistan and other developing nations. The results of this study (N=230) reveal that Afghan-Americans have an overall high commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). More specifically, female Afghan-Americans have a higher commitment to corporate social responsibility than their male counterparts. Generation X Afghan-Americans have a higher commitment to corporate social responsibility than Generation Y Afghan-Americans. Afghan-Americans with at least five years of leadership experience have a higher commitment to corporate social responsibility than Afghan-Americans with less than five years of leadership experience. Suggestions and implications are explored for multi-national managers, political leaders, and United Nations officials working toward reconstruction and the peaceful development of Afghanistan.
