Chapter Summary

Regulations on corporate transparency are the central organising theme in this chapter. The chapter surveys public policies and hard laws that are relevant to the emerging corporate social responsibility (CSR) regime. The first part highlights various policies that states have employed, at national and international levels, to encourage the development of CSR initiatives. The second and third parts are the main ones and contain a collection of laws and regulations from a variety of fields such as corporate governance, securities regulations, environmental protection and criminal law. National tort laws, in which a corporation can be held responsible for an act which causes harm to another person, whether intentionally or not, are particularly relevant as a means by which corporations may be held accountable in the absence of express human rights law obligations.

Keywords:corporate social responsibility (CSR) regime; national tort law; state policy
