The Role of the Proportionality Test in Determining Corporate Obligations in Relation to Fundamental Rights

by | Oct 15, 2018

The OxHRH in partnership with the Human Rights Discussion Group will be hosting a seminar with David Bilchitz exploring the question: Is there a role for the proportionality test in determining corporate obligations in relation to fundamental rights?

Proportionality as a test to determine the circumstances when rights may be limited has developed in law largely when considering the laws, policies and actions of public authorities. Can this structured process of reasoning be applied to corporations? In this seminar, David will explore the case for applying proportionality reasoning to determining the obligations of corporations in relation to fundamental rights. David will also consider the complexities of applying this form of reasoning to corporate obligations and attempt to provide solutions to conceptual and practical challenges.

Sandwiches and refreshments will be served.
