Summary
"This book analyses the accountability of European home States for their failure to secure the human rights of victims coming from host States against transnational enterprises. It argues for a reconfiguration of the relationship between multinational enterprises and individuals, both of which have been profoundly changed by globalisation. Enterprises are now supranational entities with numerous affiliates all over the world. Likewise, individuals are increasingly part of a global community. Despite this, the relationship between the two is deregulated. Addressing this lacuna, this study proposes an innovative business and human rights litigation strategy. It illustrates why such a strategy is needed, pointing to the lack of effective legal remedies against European multinationals. The goal is to empower victims that come from developing countries against European States which are failing to hold multinational enterprises accountable for human rights abuses".--
