Transnational Corporations' Impunity

Melik Özden

This publication will demonstrate the necessity and urgency of having a binding international instrument. It will allow to sanction the multinationals responsible for human rights violations. 

The current capitalist system imposes a normative imbalance in favor of the multinationals which are the beneficiaries of an architecture of impunity. This means that these entities very often escape legal action owing to a lack of political will on the part of certain states but also because of a lack of appropriate legal instruments at the international level.
