Local Organization Responses To Black Lives Matters Protests: Embracing An “Ethic Of Care” When Engaging Community Crises By Convention Visitors Bureaus, Jeffrey D. Brand

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

Since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, at least 140 cities across the United States have experienced protests resulting in vandalism, looting, shootings, and other violence. These protests represent a challenge for community organizations such as convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs), whose responsibility is to promote their local community as a place for tourism, meetings, conferences, and other activities. This study explores the response of Visit Aurora, a Colorado CVB to engage their local protests inspired by the BLM movement, and a local case—the death of Elijah McClain.

Buffer Or Backfire? Effects Of Corporate Social Responsibility Activities In Organizational Crises, Thomas Koch, Benno Viererbl 2023 Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, Germany

Buffer Or Backfire? Effects Of Corporate Social Responsibility Activities In Organizational Crises, Thomas Koch, Benno Viererbl

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities can help an organization to build a favorable reputation; such activities can thereby serve as a buffer in times of crisis. However, research also suggests that these activities can backfire and reinforce the reputational damage caused by a crisis because they can lead to elevated expectations among the stakeholders. Drawing on prior research on buffering and backfire effects, this study examines the possible moderating effects of crisis type and severity. Two experiments show that CSR activities positively affect the perceptions of a company’s affective image. In times of crisis, this image boost indeed serves as …
