Multinational corporations have the potential to bring economic and social benefits to emerging economies, but also social and political upheaval that can suppress fundamental human rights. This book synthesizes views from multinational corporations and civil society groups to find areas of common ground and raise issues of future potential conflict. The authors draw on their academic specializations in business and law to examine important human rights questions from legal, ethical, and business perspectives. The first part of the book focuses on the role of the multinational corporation in respecting human rights. It follows with an examination of the rights of vulnerable stakeholders and their erosion via direct or indirect corporate activity. Integrating John Ruggie's "Protect, Respect, and Remedy" framework and the UN's `Guiding Principles of Business and Human Rights', this book expands upon initial dialogue on the role of business in international human rights at this vital moment in history. Law, Business and Human Rights provides unity in a broad range of issues from a variety of perspectives that should interest scholars, teachers, students, and practitioners alike.
