Business and Human Rights


Series:
SAGE Law

© 2013 | 420 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

In the 21st century, one of the most noteworthy changes in the human rights debate relates to the increased recognition of the link between business and human rights. This book is an attempt to explore this relationship and also to look into the obligations of the state and transnational corporations in the promotion of human rights.

Business and Human Rights
discusses how globalization has affected individuals in the enjoyment of their human rights in relation to the activities of corporations. The book addresses what additional steps the states should take to protect against human rights abuses by business enterprises that are owned or controlled by the state. Moreover, it covers, in depth, the role and contribution of the United Nations in business and human rights.  The book includes several real-life case studies to help the readers understand the topics discussed.
