Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms that are mentioned in the book titled Corporate Responsibility under the Alien Tort Statute: Enforcement of International Law through US Torts Law. The direct reasons for the inclusion of the Alien Tort Statute (ATS) are uncertain since the legislative record on ATS is completely silent. However, it is likely that its enactment was connected to the mistreatment of foreign ambassadors and the occurrence of piracy. The modern era history of the ATS begins in 1980 with Filártiga v. Peña- Irala.

Keywords: Alien Tort Statute (ATS); Filártiga v. Peña- Irala
