A closer look at corporate complicity in international crimes
The involvement of corporations in human rights violations is receiving increasing attention these days. Corporations can be held liable for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide committed in third countries. The EU-funded CORPACCOUNT project will shed light on the transnational mobilisations and counter-mobilisations for holding multinational corporations and their representatives accountable for complicity in major international crimes committed during dictatorships and violent conflicts since the 1970s. It will conduct a sociological analysis of both advocacy movements and business groups and associations involved in transnational accountability campaigns. Various ideas and strategies of dealing with corporate violence will also be examined.
