Professor Stewart Miller
Abstract: CSR violations among domestic and foreign firms: a study of environmental misconduct in the United States. The present study develops a theoretical framework to examine local media coverage of CSR violations by domestic and foreign firms. Specifically, we draw upon two literatures – expectation violation theory and the ingroup-outgroup literature – to examine how foreignness influences the likelihood of local media coverage following environmental misconduct and whether foreignness moderates the effect of CSR reputation on local media coverage. Using firm-level data on environmental violations in the United States, we find support for our hypotheses, thus contributing to the corporate social responsibility and liability of foreignness literatures and providing new insights for the liability of good reputation literature.
