The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme and the New Academy of Business have been engaged in a collaborative project since mid-2001 to explore trends in business-community relations and corporate citizenship. Undertaken simultaneously in seven countries - Brazil, Ghana, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Philippines and South Africa - the action research project has explored how businesses are contributing to their communities and the role of volunteers in promoting responsible business practice.

There are 70 case studies and national research reports from the project countries now available on WorldVolunteerWeb.org for downloading.
