Abstract

This is a chapter on Canada for a new book that explores the growing relationship between human rights and global business and the developing international focus on this topic, particularly as a result of recent United Nations initiatives. This first edition focuses on the legal accountability and due diligence responsibilities of corporations for human rights compliance by their overseas operations.
