Chapter Summary

Trends are based upon past decisions, what happened in the past, not to unearth precedents, but instead to determine how similar situations were resolved. Past trends in decision may include statutes and court judgments in domestic laws, and treaties as well as state practice leading to customary international law on the international level. This chapter explores past trends in decision that have been used to regulate, or proposed as a means to regulate, corporations or commercial ventures for their business practices and procedures that have a deleterious impact upon human dignity. In 2006, the United Kingdom revised provisions of its companies law relating to commercial law and business activities. Although their concerns were not addressed, the Company Act does contain two provisions that address business and human rights. Section No. 417 addresses transparency and makes company information more available.
