Multinational Corporations, Corporate Social Responsibility, & International Law | L47xx

The seminar's focus will be to study the increasingly important role of Transnational Corporations (TNCs) in this era of globalization, and the implications of this phenomenon for international law. How to regulate the activities of TNCs -- 1) by governments multilaterally, regionally, and unilaterally (by home and host states); 2) by public-private partnerships; and 3) voluntarily by each sector, each industry, or each company -- will be considered. And the impact of these developments on the traditional state-centered international system of governance will be analyzed. The requirement will be presentations and a research paper.
