            Regulating Corporate Human Rights Violations: Humanizing Business
             

            Regulating Corporate Human Rights Violations: Humanizing Business (Hardback)

            • To Order

            The quest to establish an effective regulatory mechanism to ensure that corporations comply with human rights responsibilities has gained momentum in the last decade or so, with the announcement of the Global Compact in 1999, the revision of OECD Guidelines as well as the ILO Tri...partite Deceleration in 2000, and the drafting of the Human Rights Norms in 2003. However, despite these efforts, no robust regulatory mechanism is in sight to provide effective remedies to victims of corporate human rights abuses. Against this background this book provides a theoretical framework to overcome regulatory challenges experienced in holding multinational corporations (MNCs) accountable for violation of human rights. Based on a critical evaluation of six representative regulatory initiatives, this book will show how the existing regulatory framework is inadequate because of a three-fold deficiency: the framework does not prescribe clear human rights standards, offers weak rationales for compliance, and is supported by a deficient or underdeveloped implementation-cum-enforcement mechanism. It will then go on to propose an integrated theory of regulation to remedy the inadequacy of the existing regulatory framework. The theory seeks to achieve integration between business issues and human rights issues, as well as between the why , what and how of corporate human rights responsibility discourse, setting out potential available modes of implementation, levels of operation and types of sanctions. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of human rights, international law, international relations and business ethics.

            Business and Human Rights in Southeast Asia: Risk and the Regulatory Turn
             

            Business and Human Rights in Southeast Asia: Risk and the Regulatory Turn (Paperback)

            Business and human rights has emerged as a distinct field within the corporate governance movement. The endorsement by the United Nations Human Rights Council of a new set of Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights in 2011 reinforces the State's duty to protect against h...uman rights abuses by third parties, including business; the corporate responsibility to respect human rights; and greater access by victims to effective remedy, both judicial and non-judicial. This book draws on the UN Guiding Principles and recent national plans of action, to provide an overview of relevant developments within the ASEAN region. Bridging theory and practice, the editors have positioned this book at the intersection of human rights risk and its regulation. Chapter authors discuss the implications of key case-studies undertaken across the region and various sectors, with a particular focus on extractive industries, the environment, and infrastructure projects. Topics covered include: due diligence and the role of audits; businesses' responsibilities to women and children; and the mitigation of human rights risks in the region's emerging markets. The book sheds light on how stakeholders currently approach business and human rights, and explores how the role of ASEAN States, and that of the institution itself, may be strengthened. In doing so, the book identifies critical challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the region in relation to business and human rights. This book will be of excellent use and interest to scholars, practitioners and students of human rights, business and company law, international law, and corporate governance.

            Fact: Barings was an excellent company, with professional managers. Their careers were devastated by fraud. How many other managers are now in the same position without knowing it? Fact: The average company loses between 2 per cent and 5 per cent of its turnover as a result of di...shonesty. When Mike Comer s book first appeared it quickly established itself worldwide as the standard work in its field. This third edition is a radical revision reflecting the world of EDI, electronic commerce, derivatives, computerization, empowerment, downsizing and other recent developments. Ironically, many of these have exposed companies to an alarming range of new risks. With the help of real-life case histories the author identifies the main types of fraud, the circumstances in which they occur and the telltale signs that give them away. He examines internal control systems and the attitudes and practices that allow fraud to flourish. He explains in detail how fraud can be prevented and detected, and shows why it is that many fashionable management techniques can also potentially pave the way to corporate disaster.

            The contributors in this volume address the fundamental relationship between the state and its citizens, and among the people themselves. Discussion centers on a recent decision by the United States Supreme Court in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. This case involved the u...se of eminent domain power to acquire private property for purposes of transferring it by the State to another private party that would make better economic use of the land. This type of state action has been identified as an economic development taking. In the Kelo case, the Court held that the action was legal within provisions of the US Constitution but the opinion was contentious among some of the Justices and has been met with significant negative outcry from the public. The Kelo case and the public debate arising in its aftermath give cause to assess the legal landscape related to the ability of government to fairly balance the tension between private property and the public interest. The tension and the need to successfully strike a balance are not unique to any one country or any one political system. From the United States to the United Kingdom, to the People's Republic of China, property and its legal regulation are of prime importance to matters of economic development and civic institution building. The Kelo decision, therefore, explores a rich set of legal principles with broad applicability.
