Business and Human Rights in ASEAN. A Baseline Study
Edited by Prof. Dr. Christine Kaufmann, Prof. David Cohen, Prof. Kevin Tan, Delphia Lim
With economic growth on the rise, many ASEAN countries face new business opportunities and new actors, such as international business companies, taking the floor. The debate on human rights in a business context is not new but in many regards particularly challenging.
The object of this book is to gather, analyse and assess the depth of information available, prevalence, causes and impact of business in human rights enforcement in each ASEAN country with the view to provide a comprehensive, objective assessment of the situation as revealed through the published literature.
