Beschrijving Proceedings of the British Academy: Economic Actors and the Limits of Transitional Justice

The rights of victims to truth, justice, reparations and guarantees of non-repetition when businesses are involved in past and present abuses are seldom guaranteed. A legacy of impunity has prevailed globally in which economic actors have incurred few legal or financial (indemnity) costs for violating behaviour. Examining cases in Nazi Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Honduras, PerĂº, the Philippines and South Africa, this edited volume traces
business accountability efforts. It identifies the tools applicable to different country contexts that have facilitated corporate accountability for human rights violations, while also flagging the barriers that persist. This volume presents the past and the present of accountability for corporations complicit
in gross human rights violations, and also considers what the future may hold.
