The changing social expectations of corporations within a globalised economic environment are challenging our traditional conception of the proper commercial function. This text delimits their emergent roles and responsibilities under international law. "International Documents on Corporate Responsibility" includes the principal international, regional and national instruments drafted by intergovernmental organisations or states as well as codes of conduct formulated by industry associations, trade unions and non-governmental organisations.Its coverage includes the fields of human rights, international criminal and environmental law, labour standards, international trade, armed conflict, sustainable development, corruption, consumer protection and corporate governance. Each document is accompanied by a brief explanatory commentary outlining the historical origins of the instrument, the principal actors involved, controversial negotiation issues, applicable implementation procedure, and identifies further reference material. This comprehensive compilation of materials dating from the 1970s to the present day in one single readily-accessible and fully-indexed volume will be of interest to students and researchers of corporate responsibility, as well as corporate executives, government officials, legal practitioners, tertiary institutions, business associations, trade unions and NGO activists.
