Narjess Boubakri and Jocelyn Grira


This chapter discusses three corporate socially responsible banking models: (1) cooperative financial institutions; (2) the Islamic banking model; and (3) microfinance institutions. We shed more light on the distinctive characteristics of these corporate socially responsible financial institutions, highlight their contributions to socio-economic development, and emphasize the role they play in promoting ethical business standards and practices, as well as their contribution to community.
