Corporate Responsibility for Human Rights Impacts is a fascinating collection of perspectives on the key developments and trends in business and human rights law. Written by a highly respected panel of experts, it examines the difficult and nuanced questions associated with corporate accountability from all sides. This book contributes unique and thoughtful perspectives, legally grounded and passionately contended, to the ongoing dialogue about the intersection of human rights and corporate responsibility.

This book focuses mainly on developments in the United States and the United Kingdom, although examples of legal developments in corporate accountability for human rights in developing countries are discussed in many chapters. This book considers the question: how will lawyers and courts deal with the thorny issue of extraterritoriality in transnational litigation brought against companies for human rights abuses abroad?

The topics covered in detail include:

  • The international legal context of the business and human rights arena
  • Domestic policy, legislation, and litigation in the United States and United Kingdom focusing on corporate accountability for human rights
  • Anticipated future developments in corporate accountability for human rights

Regardless of one's perspective, this book demonstrates that business and human rights law is a dynamic, rich field that is prompting both legal and business innovations in the pursuit of human rights.
