Economía, Guerra y Dictaduras

"Business is business." Corporate executives like to see their actions as politically and legally neutral. But by actions like selling repressive regimes surveillance technologies or buying raw materials from conflict zones, corporate actors can facilitate the persecution of government critics, fan the flames of war and, in some cases, even aid and abet war crimes. The Nuremberg Trials and the subsequent Nuremberg proceedings show how international law can help to challenge this. Where grave human rights crimes are committed, it's not just the political and military leaders who belong before a court. The role of corporate executives and managers in dictatorships and wars can and must also be subject to prosecution.
