TJSGA's commentary on the UN Norms draft

The Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, under the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), approved, in its fifty-fifth session last August, a draft of the Norms on the responsibilities of transnational corporations and other business enterprises with regard to human rights. The Sub-Commission in a resolution unanimously approved the Norms submitted by the Working Group on that topic, and decided to transmit those Norms to the Commission on Human Rights for consideration and adoption by the Commission in March 2004.

These Norms signal a possible advent of compulsory CSR but continue to legitimize a structure that generates sheer inequality between North and South.
