Abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to explore if the concept of Creating Shared Value would remain valid when considering it at the hand of different national institutional settings around the world and their influence on business conduct.

A qualitative approach has been chosen to explore the research question of this thesis. First, we theorized Matten & Moon's (2008) framework regarding explicit and implicit CSR and expanded it to the concept of CSV. Second, a cross-national case study was conducted using secondary data. The cases were analysed with a framework we developed based on Whitley (1999), Amable (2003) and Hotho (2014).

The contributions of this paper are two-fold. On the one hand, several contributions have been provided to... (More)

The contributions of this paper are two-fold. On the one hand, several contributions have been provided to the theoretical field of shared value. On the other hand, contributions have been made considering the operationalization of shared value in cross-national contexts based on institutional settings and the business systems approach. (Less)
