La responsabilité des entreprises en matière de droits de l'Homme

Abstract : The human rights corporate responsibility (HRCR) has emerged due to the near-impunity for corporate abuses. This responsibility is new within the different legal systems as it is difficult to adapt traditional legal techniques to the globalization of economic relations. The paradox of human rights corporate responsibility is that it should not imply the creation of new obligations since States already have the necessary tools to ensure that human rights are respected by companies under their jurisdiction. In a globalized economy, corporate responsibility issues must necessarily be considered in a global perspective to be effectively addressed. Indeed, the increasing complexity of groups' structures, their internationalization and the development of supply chains caracterized by an increasing number of subcontractors lead to connections with more than one legal order.
