Highly publicised human rights abuses involving corporations such as De Beers, Nike and Shell have focused attention on the impact of business on human rights. Transnational Corporations and Human Rights addresses this controversial topic through a diverse collection of essays from an interdisciplinary group of contributors. The book explores topics such as corporate social responsibility; the impact of TNCs on internal conflicts, and codes of conduct. Several chapters discuss the impact of specific corporations and industries on human rights. These case studies range from the widely publicised negative effects of foreign oil companies in Nigeria to the positive engagement by a logging company with the Nuu-chah-nulth people in Canada. The collection uniquely combines the discussion of the relationship between corporations and human rights with an in-depth examination of how companies actually operate in the brave new world of globalization and deregulation.
