Abstract:

"This edited volume brings together scholars and practitioners to address the question as to whether, in our globalised world, the protection of economic, social and cultural rights in the South has or should become the duty of actors beyond the state. It explores the role of actors such as transnational business, international financial institutions, supranational organizations and influential states that are involved in or impact on human rights in developing countries. In adopting a 'responsibilities approach', it seeks to clarify the nature, content and scope of their contemporary duties."--Jacket.
