Abstract

This chapter sheds light on the legal developments that came to sideline U.S. courts with respect to achieving remedies for foreign-cubed business & human rights matters. It examines the reality of ever more robust cross-border protections for corporate property and shareholders’ rights versus the retention of a soft and ultimately voluntary approach to corporate responsibilities. In response, there have emerged new external channels for corporate responsibility that — untethered to national systems of corporate governance — can better address the state’s embedded protectiveness over its domestic corporations.

Keywords: corporate governance, business & human rights, human rights, universal jurisdiction, international law
