1 Human rights and business: setting the stage
Restricted access

Focusing on the adoption of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) in 2011, this timely book charts the field of business and human rights, finding that corporate responsibility to respect human rights is gradually evolving into a binding legal duty in both national and international law. Following the structure of the UNGPs, Peter T. Muchlinski also covers the state duty to protect against business violations of human rights, the corporate responsibility to respect human rights and access to remedies for corporate violations of human rights.
