ABSTRACT
This paper explores the corporate social responsibility challenges faced by Shell in trying to alleviate the suffering of local communities which was due to negligence and environmental pollution in Niger Delta, Nigeria. The paper goes through existing academic journals to find out whether the Nigerian government is to blame for lack of adequate rules to prevent environmental pollution and oil spills or Shell is to blame for devastating the land while extracting oil. It concludes that while the Nigerian government used an iron fist to address the issues in the region, Shell engaged in socially responsible behavior by working on community projects and changing its approach from community assistance to community development and finally to sustainable community development.
