EXTRATERRITORIAL LITIGATION OF TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS FOR HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS: Challenges in access to jutice for victims

Mandatory global standards regarding human rights applicable to
companies are absent. This situation has allowed businesses, particularly Transnational companies (TNCs) to consolidate themselves as subjects of important rights, but without minimum obligations to respect human rights or the environment of the local communities where they operate. Different regulatory standards in home and host-countries foster a conflict between
the need to attract foreign investment and the need for diminished state power to regulate these investments and ensure human rights. The study will analyze the application of extraterritorial jurisdiction, seeking to identify and challenges that arise from the adoption of extraterritorial solutions to hold accountable corporate misconduct that violates human rights.
