Business, Human Rights Law and Corporate Social Responsibility (W822)

This course considers the concepts of human rights and corporate social responsibility within a business context; in an environment where businesses are regarded as responsible and accountable for their actions, students explore how these concepts have been used to create frameworks of accountability; in particular they consider the development of international labour standards, criminal liability (corruption and corporate manslaughter), branding and marketing, charitable foundations and a range of specialist industries through the use of business case studies; an interdisciplinary approach is taken throughout providing for more detailed consideration of the challenges faced by businesses in a globalised world.
