Summary
As a result of recent developments, several Western legal systems are now ready to consider the accountability of parent companies from the global north for human rights violations committed by their subsidiaries or suppliers from the global south. Leonhard Hübner examines the implications of enforcing human rights against the parent company with regard to international jurisdiction, conflict of laws and substantive liability. By taking current developments in different jurisdictions into account, the author evaluates and proposes a reform of German law.
