'Vedanta: A new landmark in litigating extraterritorial torts'?

Blanco, Elena

Authors



Abstract

Litigation in the English courts for environmental damage and violations of socioeconomic human rights committed abroad by subsidiaries of United Kingdom (UK) based parent companies is becoming increasingly important in the quest for corporate accountability. Victims of the operations of multinational companies face insurmountable difficulties when seeking to obtain justice locally and, in the absence of an internationally binding instrument addressing violations of human rights and environmental damage caused by private actors, tort litigation in the home country of the parent company is often the only realistic option.
