Due to the impact of corruption on corporations’ human rights obligations, this Article argues for a new conceptualization of what it means for a corporation to combat corruption. This new conceptualization results from integrating corporations’ responsibilities to combat corruption with its responsibilities to respect human rights. Integrating these two responsibilities not only changes what it should mean for a corporation to combat corruption, but also moves corruption directly within the business and human rights movement.
