About the book
Implementing Business and Human Rights Norms in Africa: Law and Policy Interventions provides in-depth and authoritative examination of the respective duties and responsibilities of African states and businesses to prevent, mitigate, and remedy adverse human rights impact of corporate activities
With case studies from Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa in particular, the book introduces readers to legal and policy interventions in addressing the challenges of implementing business and human rights in developing countries, and how states can increase their obligations under various international human rights instruments.
Written in a user-friendly style, this book outlines the challenges and opportunities for leveraging resources for sustainable development, and highlights the various ways in which power, interests, incentives, and characteristics of political systems shape how businesses impact human rights, the impacts of governance interventions, and the ultimate outcomes of both.
It is an indispensable text and reference work for students, scholars, practitioners, and stakeholders in finance, energy, oil, and gas, environmental, telecommunications, manufacturing, mining and development sectors.
