The confrontation and collaboration between business and NGOs is one of the many different subfields that scholars interested in the role of business in society focus on today. The reasons are first of all that, in my view, they have been essential in advancing the CSR movement in the last twenty years, and will continue to do so. Secondly, insufficient attention has been given to the study of internal and external conditions that make it possible for a confrontational interaction between companies and NGOs to evolve to some form of collaboration. And, thirdly, more work needs to be done to explore the benefits of such transition towards collaboration for society at large.
