Abstract

It is widely accepted that the State has principal responsibility for establishing and maintaining regulatory frameworks for the effective protection of labour and human rights within its own borders. Less clear has been the extent to which it is desirable or necessary for the State to play a role in regulating companies domiciled within its territory with respect to their transnational business activities and relationships.
