Implementing Corporate Social Responsibility in Iran, CSR in Iran like in other countries has its own challenges. Some of the corporations do not want to do the CSR laws because it creates limitation for their corporation but it should be noticed that this view is not a reasonable and realistic look on the CSR implementation and in general it can be said as a short look on the CSR. If companies looks strategically and long term on the market and see its compotators in real the reasonable conclusion is doing and implementing from the CSR. The aim of this paper aims to study the corporate social responsibility, CSR in Iran generally and some issues and challenges of CSR in Iran come as well.
