NEW RightsUp #RightNow Podcast: A No-Man’s Land of Justice-Holding Corporations Accountable for Human Rights

by | Sep 20, 2017

There are many ways in which private businesses hold financial and political power akin to states. They also commit violations and abuses of power akin to states. But are they held accountable in the same way that states are? This episode is all about whether corporations should have human rights obligations – should they be responsible for upholding and defending human rights the way that we expect governments to? We interview Boni Meyersfeld, Professor of Law at the University of Witswatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa, about corporate responsibility, gender inequality, and human rights in an age of globalization.

You can listen to the podcast on Soundcloud.
