Findings and Discussion

Chapter

Abstract

The point of departure of the dissertation was the diagnosis that while the increasing internationalisation of firms has contributed to economic growth, job creation and technology transfer on an aggregate level, it has also contributed to an increase in corporate human rights violations. With no legally-binding arrangement conceivable at the global level to ensure responsible business conduct, a new, multifaceted governance regime for human rights has emerged involving different actors (state, business, civil society) at various levels (local, national, international) relying on diverse governance modes (hierarchy, market, network) to promote corporate respect for human rights.
