Corporate Accountability in the Context of Transitional Justice (Hardback)Sabine Michalowski (editor)
- We can order this
Corporate Accountability in the Context of Transitional Justice explores how corporations can be held accountable for their role in past human rights violations when a country is making a transition from conflict or repression to peace and democracy. It breaks new ground in theorizing the linkages between the areas of transitional justice and corporate accountability and analyzing problems frequently arising where the two fields meet in practice, for example where the role of corporations in past human rights violations is examined by truth and reconciliation commissions or in the course of litigation.
The book provides an overview of the current trends in law and in legal and political discussion relating to both areas, as well as in-depth analysis of how tools of corporate accountability and transitional justice can complement each other in order to achieve the best outcomes for bringing justice to victims and lasting peace to societies. The authors bring extensive experience from diverse professional backgrounds and jurisdictions to provide the first sustained attempt to address this link. The book will be of interest to scholars, practitioners, policymakers and activists working in the areas of transitional justice; corporate accountability; and business and human rights.

"The book edited by Sabine Michalowski, Professor of Law at the University of Essex, is a welcome contribution because it addresses a question almost unexplored so far: how can corporations be held accountable for their role in human rights abuses when a country is making a transition from conflict or repression to peace and democracy? The volume deals with this question from both a theoretical and a practical perspective."
