Abstract

An analysis was made of how six Brazilian steel companies restructured their community relations after privatization. This description was based upon an exploratory study of quantitive and qualitative information regarding social responsibility obtained from the most important privatized steel companies and includes as a reference the currently expounded theory of social responsibility. Results disclose that past performance was adapted to the new requirements and socio-economic situation of the country and to enhance this private activity in order to make up for deficiencies in the wake of the changing role played by the government. The current discourse on these actions of social responsibility endorses these private undertakings and does not, however, free the government from the basic role of agent in national development, irrespective of the size of the regional economy in question.
