Corporate Social Responsibility, Human Rights and the Law by Corporate Social Responsibility, Human Rights and the Lawexamines the responsibilities of business enterprises for human rights from a legal perspective. It analyses the legal status of the 'corporate responsibility to respect human rights' as articulated by the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). This concept currently reflects an international consensus and is promoted by the UN. The book contemplates the various founding perspectives of the UNGPs, and how the integration of notions such as 'principled pragmatism' and 'polycentric governance' within its framework provides insights into the future course of law and policy, compliance, and corporate respect for human rights. The book thus takes a global focus, examining the interaction of CSR, human rights and the law in a broader global governance context. Setting out a possible future scenario for the legalisation of the corporate responsibility to respect human rights that is informed by the UNGP's founding perspectives and reflects current realties in the human rights landscape, this book will be of great interest to scholars of business ethics, international human rights law and CSR more broadly.
