Chapter Summary

The front matter section of the book Foreign Investment, Human Rights and the Environment: A Perspective from South Asia on The Role of Public International Law for Development presents the table of contents, foreword, preface, introduction, acknowledgements, table of treaties and other international instruments, table of statutes, table of cases and abbreviations. Events like the Bhopal disaster, the sale of products harmful to human health and safety, and child labour, especially in resource-scarce settings, raise fundamental issues of human dignity and ecological integrity. From a legal perspective, and in the context of foreign direct investment by transnational corporations in developing countries, they highlight the lacuna of a holistic international legal framework and its implementation.
