Abstract

While corporations have globalized, international law has not. Countries remain the main duty-bearers under international law, and they often prioritise their economic interests over the human rights of the most vulnerable people in developing and emerging countries.The United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights organised a day to discuss its authoritative draft, “General Comment on State Obligations in the Context of Business Activities,” in Geneva on February 21, 2017. The main aim of UNCESCR was to contribute to the creation of a global level playing field, in which human rights are effectively protected by states and respected by corporations. This contribution analyzes the issue to which Oxfam devoted a major part of its keynote during the the discussion day: the 'business case' for human rights.
