Die Verantwortung von Unternehmen und Unternehmern für Völkerrechtsverbrechen – Die Entwicklung seit den Nürnberger Prozessen

Wolfgang Kaleck

In the course of globalisation, transnationally active business enterprises are increasingly involved in activities that are precarious from a human rights perspective and often also potentially relevant under criminal law.

While the human rights debate is in full swing, International criminal law has so far only inadequately addressed this development.

This volume, which is based on a symposium held in Berlin in October 2014, presents contributions that shed light on the suitability of (international) criminal law as an instrument for responding to serious human rights violations with corporate involvement from different perspectives. These include historical scholarship, basic criminal law research, white-collar criminal law, criminology and the practice of criminal defence.
