dc.description.abstractThis article maps the different moral positions related to social responsibility (SR) as articulated by 25 small business owners and explains how they understand their positions within a range of SR practices. The morality underpinning their social responsibility tended to be embedded in a sense of relationship with and commitment to the well-being of the local geographic community but was threaded with felt ambiguities. Through an ethical analysis, we argue that this moral commitment to community is connected to a relational worldview, distinct from values and assumptions driving the existing economic system, yet they pursue this vision as individual actors rather than working collectively.en_UK
