Transnational Corporations on Trial
Shaping globalization at the policy level is one of the greatest challenges of our century. The Heinrich Böll Foundation commissioned this study in preparation for the EU – LAC Summit. The study analyses existing legal means of holding European transnational companies liable for extraterritorial human rights violations. The authors examine four representative legal cases against European companies in Latin America that revolve around problems typical in the region.
