Children's Rights and Business
Children's Rights and Business: Governing
Obligations and Responsibility is a comprehensive legal inquiry into children's rights and business. Relying on insights from
various disciplines, the book illustrates the need for a children-focused inquiry on business and human rights. An analysis
of the norm legalization process around the regulation of business and human rights, particularly of children's rights follows
the inquiry into existing hard and soft law regulatory frameworks on children's rights and business. The book goes on to evaluate
the promise of these frameworks in light of globalized business transactions through the lens of in-depth case illustrations
on children's rights in cotton and mineral supply chains and children's rights in large-scale energy and transport investment
projects. Finally, it concludes with a normative outlook on governing the children's rights obligations of businesses and
responsibility when violations occur, drawing on global governance approaches.
