Abstract
The purpose of our thesis is to describe how CSR is anchored in the public sector, and further to analyze how this work is organized throughout municipal organizations. We have applied a mixed methods approach conducting both a quantitative and a qualitative study. The quantitative approach involves a document study made on all 33 municipalities in the County of Skåne, while the quantitative approach involves a multiple case studies on four municipalities that have come a long way in their work with CSR. Our findings suggest that CSR can be anchored in different ways in municipal organizations based on their local circumstances, where the control system is an important tool for anchoring the activities throughout the municipal organization.
