This article revisits the accountability of multinational corporations from the perspective of general international law. Such a perspective proves to be much less traditional that it may appear at first sight. On the contrary, innovative approaches may be inferred from general international law in order to ensure accountability of multinational enterprises. This includes basic notions such as legal personality and state responsibility as well as due diligence which represents the most promising avenue in this field.
