Abstract:     
Despite their profound influence upon international affairs, transnational corporations are more notable in their absence from public international law doctrine, than in their presence. This article examines the anomalous position of the transnational corporation in public international law and proposes reasons for its omission. It concludes that assumptions implicit in international legal discourse tend to obstruct public international law's direct engagement of an entity such as the transnational corporation.
