Abstract:

This paper examines a new attempt to make U.S. corporations accountable for their complicity in human rights violations occurring abroad by using the Alien Torts Claims Act (ATCA) in U.S. courts. Although these cases have yet to be resolved, a preliminary analysis shows that powerful actors from the state and the business community have come together to oppose this use of the ATCA, commonly invoking free-market rhetoric. Furthermore, the ATCA cases allow us to look into a novel, legal approach to affecting human rights in a global world.
