This book aims to provide an analysis of the accountability of European home states for their failure to secure protection for the victims of human rights caused by the activities of their business enterprise nationals in their operation in other states. It argues for the reconfiguration of the relationship between multinational enterprises and individuals, both of which have been profoundly changed by globalisation. Enterprises are now supranational entities with numerous affiliates all over the world. Likewise individuals are increasingly part of a global community. Despite this, the relationship between the two is deregulated. Addressing this lacuna, this study proposes an innovative business and human rights litigation strategy. It illustrates why such a strategy is needed, pointing to the lack of effective legal address against European multinationals.
