This chapter explores benefit-sharing by examining ‘corporate social responsibility’ (CSR) in the extractive industries of three members of the Southern African Development Community (SADC): South Africa, Namibia, and Zambia. These countries have high economic dependency on their extractive industries. It is not their similarities, however, but the disparities between them that becomes the focus of this chapter: the disparities pertaining to benefit-sharing among stakeholders in the extractive industries raise the question about the motivations for, and consequences of, particular models of CSR. As such, this chapter evaluates the different approaches to CSR, relying on indicators normally used to assess levels of support for CSR initiatives.

Keywords:   mining industries, extractive industries, corporate social responsibility, CSR, Southern African Development Community, South Africa, Namibia, Zambia
