Description

Video 1. ‘Business and Human Rights: Doing Business in a Globalized World’ by Victoria Azizi & Mark Kawakami – Maastricht University

The first online TEGL lecture series focuses on Business and Human Rights. Globalization and international business go hand in hand, for better or for worse. This marriage poses challenging questions about the need, possibilities and limits on regulating the world-wide impact of businesses.

The introductory lecture ‘Doing business in a globalized world’ will set the stage. After that, the series will touch upon topics such as corporate law making, the influence of tech companies on democracy, environmental protection vis à vis business actors, human rights protection in trade law and contract law, the corporation as an international legal entity and the mechanisms and dilemmas of extraterritorial enforcement.
