Abstract

This article calls on the EU to fill the governance gap developing as the United States retreats from holding companies responsible for extraterritorial human rights abuses. Doing so would facilitate the location of a new European identity in human rights leadership. The leadership would provide a compelling justification for European integration, one that the public could more easily understand and support. In the current economic climate, this is more necessary than ever.
