While studies on international corporate social responsibility (CSR) have expanded signiﬁcantly, their true global nature can be questioned. We systematically review 494 articles in 31 journals over a 31-year period. We assess the embeddedness of CSR in international management/business (IB); analyze the coverage of developing, emerging, and developed countries; map the literature thematically; summarize key ﬁndings; discuss main empirical features; and identify unanswered questions, implications, and best practices. We ﬁnd that international CSR research is far from being global and still emerging in ‘mainstream’ IB. This comprehensive review also helps to set an agenda for future international CSR scholarship.
