Course Description

The unanimous adoption of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights cemented the notion that businesses play a critical role in supporting human rights in all jurisdictions where they or their affiliates operate. New legislation, regulatory mechanisms, and case law further affirm that governments and courts expect businesses to conduct their affairs in adherence to international human rights obligations. This course will provide students with an understanding of what has changed in the area of corporate accountability, and how Business and Human Rights Law affects transnational corporations in Canada and abroad.
