Transnational business human rights regulations and their effects upon human rights protection


Contemporary corporate-related human rights abuses are often attributed to the processes of neo-liberal globalisation. Pressures upon nations to compete in the global marketplace, upon suppliers to produce ever-cheaper and everfaster, upon workers to accept more precarious terms of employment and upon communities to give up land and natural resources, all in the pursuit of economic growth have unveiled examples of the darker side of business operations within the global economy. Whereas this side was more hidden and less susceptible to resistance in a different era, transnational activism in this age – with the aid of new forms of communication technology and media – has enabled greater public awareness of this miscreant behaviour and the ensuing injustices.
