Corporate Environmental Accountability in International Law 2E

Second Edition

Elisa Morgera

  • Provides a comprehensive overview of the subject area, including an historical perspective and a combination of theoretical analysis and pragmatic observation of current practice
  • Offers a systematic analysis of the environmental dimension of corporate accountability across all business sectors
  • Analyses in detail the role of intergovernmental organizations, who, in light of the lack of consensus among States, are increasingly engaging with non-State actors directly
  • This is an open access title available under the terms of a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 International licence

New to this Edition:

  • Features new sections on: the UN Framework on Business and Human Rights; the normative work of the former UN Special Rapporteur on Indigenous Peoples' rights; and the 2011 review of the OECD Guidelines and for multinational corporations and the IFC's performance standards; the Rio+20 Summit; the Kiobel case
  • Fully updated to cover recent developments including the intergovernmental endorsement of the UN Framework on Business and Human Rights, the 2011 parallel review of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Corporations and of the International Finance Corporation, and the diminished relevance of the US as a jurisdiction for transnational corporate environmental liability litigation and increased use of other jurisdictions for holding corporations liable through civil law for foreign harm
