[PDF] Access to Justice: Human Rights Abuses Involving Corporations - South Africa

This study addresses the question of access to justice, including legal remedies available for human rights abuses committed with the involvement of corporations in South Africa. It particularly focuses on access and barriers to justice encountered in the judicial context...Sections 1 and 2 consider the ways in which the law can hold corporations and directors liable for human rights abuses and provide remedies to victims. Section 3, the largest section, considers a variety of obstacles victims may face in pursuing a remedy...Section 4 discusses the broader lessons and reform proposals that this contribution suggests can be drawn from the South African case.
