  • Increased knowledge about the efficacy of CSR and the role it could play in achieving public policy goals;
  • Policy recommendations for companies, national governments and the EU, promoting elements of a European approach to CSR.

The results of the RARE project will be disseminated widely including a conference and publication of a book.
