Through this class we will explore one of the most rapidly growing area of human rights normative development and practice – business and human rights. There have been long running philosophical and academic debates about whether human rights law applies to non-state actors and if so, how, as human rights law was conceived as primarily a relationship between the state and individuals. While the academic debates were playing out, workers, individuals and communities around the world were experiencing a clear fact – businesses clearly do have an impact on human rights – often negative and at times profound. This course focuses on the legal, practical and political challenges that all stakeholders face in this new area of emerging international law.
