Should Multinational Corporations be Held Liable for Having Done Business with the Apartheid Regime? (So. Africa)

[A]t the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg...[o]n...16 October I will deliver a lecture entitled “Should Multinational Corporations be Held Liable for Having Done Business with the Apartheid Regime?” The question...has been specifically looked at in two...forums: the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and US Federal Courts....The issue of liability is of both a moral and legal nature...What is particularly interesting in the South African example is that room was made for the question of liability to be approached from both moral and legal angles, arguably allowing for a better and perhaps more balanced understanding of the issues.
