[CONFÉRENCE] ‘’International Liability of Multinational Corporations for Human Rights Violations‘’

Publié le 20 mars 2018 Mis à jour le 20 mars 2018

Should international corporations be held accountable for the human rights abuses of their subsidiaries overseas? If so where and how? I will explore solutions (or the lack thereof) in domestic company law, in tort, in statute and in Public International Law. I will look at English and US cases as well as those of European jurisdictions including France and the Netherlands.
