Chapter Summary

Corporations participate within several international processes to produce outcomes that become binding upon governments as international law. International law, including examination of its sources, is ordinarily assessed by reference to governments. This is the introductory chapter of the book, which examines the procedural issues associated with the participatory claims of corporations and, to a lesser extent, evaluates their substantive impact upon the content of international law. It considers whether there has been a qualitative transformation of the corporate role within the international legal order and in what ways the methods, motivations and regulatory demands of corporations augments or challenges the notion of consent as the underlying foundation of international law. The chapter presents an overview of how other chapters of the book are organised.
