Corporate Responsibility in International and Transnational Law

As the activities of corporations often transcend national frontiers and the consequences of such activities can be felt in a great number of States, there is increasing awareness that some form of supranational regulation of corporations is necessary in certain areas such as the protection of human rights and the environment and the fight against corruption. This course explores the theoretical difficulties in securing corporate responsibility within the framework of transnational law and international law as well as the practical aspects of enforcing such responsibility in international and national judicial fora.
