multinationals & corporate social responsibility
This is by far the best book to date exploring various national and international legal means through which to improve the human rights performance of transnational firms. Zerk is thorough yet innovative, strongly committed to the realization of rights yet admirably flexible in how best to achieve that end. She examines the responsibilities of states and corporations in equal balance, concluding that neither can suffice by itself. This should be required reading for anyone concerned with these critical issues.'
