Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Today, there are many refugees living displaced and often separated from their family and loved ones. A partnership between a corporation, a United Nations function and a non-governmental organization has been formed with the goal of reuniting these refugees. The actors involved are Ericsson, Refugees United, and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. This results in an interesting and unique corporate responsibility project. The initiative is evaluated and described in this report from a social responsibility perspective by developing a qualitative case study using triangulating methods. The result is a study interesting for all three parties. The assessment showed that the project is advantageous from a social responsibility perspective and it also highlights areas that can be further investigated.
