about this item

Experts in law, human rights, finance, and international relations are the authors of these papers from a June 2013 international conference organized by the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences and the Norwegian Center for Human Rights at the University of Oslo. They examine the social and legal obligations of international businesses to conform to human rights laws and standards and analyze legislation that governs international businesses in the area of human rights. The book’s introduction offers an overview of human rights and regulation theory, human rights law, and business concepts. Papers from the conference are then presented in sections on conceptual developments, contextual issues, and sites of regulation. Some topics explored are environmental protection, soft law standards, and the use of extraterritorial measures. Case studies shed light on industrial zones of Vietnam, mining in Latin America, the state oil company in Azerbaijan, disabled people and the export industries in India, a human rights framework for combating corporate corruption in global supply chains, and the use of human rights due diligence frameworks in the electronics industry. The book’s readership includes scholars in legal studies and development studies, as well as public servants and others interested in human rights and transnational business. The book can be used for courses and trainings in human rights law, corporate social responsibility, and global development. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
