Abstract

The primary aim of this thesis is to identify a coherent legal principle to establish a novel duty of care for corporate human rights violations and environmental damages. This research will examine whether tort and civil law offer better accountability and remedies for victims of corporate human rights abuses. Over the course of the doctoral studies, this study has attempted to carry out an in-depth and critical analysis of the concept of corporate accountability. Moreover, a fundamental part of this research is devoted to examining the extent to which international criminal law influences international human rights law in its use of tort law and civil law remedies. Finally, this study attempts to set out a theoretical mechanism for duty of care as well as a proposal for the establishment of a Hybrid International Transnational Corporation Court that would have the potential to effectively interpret the concept of the corporate duty of care under tort law.
