Abstract:     
This paper explores the theoretical parameters associated with applying the command responsibility doctrine for prosecuting military superiors under international law to corporations. The jump from the military context to the corporate context is not completely analogous, yet holds some promise. Holding corporations accountable for participation in atrocities under international law is not a new concept, but the impetus to do so is gaining momentum.
