Commercial Law and Human Rights
In an environment of globalization, privatization and corporatization, the intersection of commercial law and human rights has raised fundamental questions of international significance for commercial lawyers, governments and non-government organizations alike. This book explores the extent and implications of this intersection, in areas such as the legal responsibilities (actual and potential) multi-national corporations and obligations under international law, extra-territorial state laws, labour law, anti-discrimination legislation, native title rights, intellectual property, commercial litigation, tax law and the commercial development of biotechnology. The aim of the book is to encourage commerical lawyers to consider the significance of human rights issues for their work and also human rights lawyers and activists to consider the importance of commercial law to their work.
