Corporations and Human Rights: Is it any of their Business?

Do Multi-nationals show enough respect for human rights. Are current measures to uphold human rights strong enough?


Given continuing controversies over the human rights record of some multinational corporations, several MNCs have attempted to foster a culture of human rights within their operating practices and public personas. However, does this go far enough? Should organisations that work across, with and in nation states be subject to the same rules and regulations that governments find themselves answerable to, or is it up to governments to establish their own domestic regulations? Is the UN Global Compact a significant enough tool with which to monitor the human rights performance of MNCs?
