The paper draws on evidence of two recent UK administrations, the Thatcher (Conservative) and the Blair (Labour) governments, encouraging CSR through ministerial leadership; stimulating new and existing business associations; subsidising CSR activities and organisations; and the deployment of ‘soft’ regulation. It explains the findings with reference to a wider societal governance crisis which these governments chose to solve with CSR along with a variety of other measures. The concluding discussion assesses implications of and further research questions arising from the findings concerning the nature of initiative and power in business-government relations and the comparative significance of the findings. The Author: Jeremy Moon is the Director of the International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ICCSR) at the Nottingham University Business School and a Professor of corporate social responsibility.   Address for correspondence: Prof Jeremy Moon, International Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility, Nottingham University Business School, Nottingham University, Jubilee Campus, Wollaton Road, Nottingham NG8 1BB, United Kingdom.
