Piercing the Corporate Veil Conference: Multinational Corporate Accountability
Are legal systems failing those wronged by multinational corporations?
Is the “corporate veil” allowing human rights and environmental abuses to take place?
How are Canadian multinational corporations being held accountable?
This conference will attempt to answer these vital questions by exploring corporate accountability from a wide variety of perspectives, disciplines and jurisdictions to develop unique solutions that hold multinational corporations responsible for their actions. It will provide a platform to examine the tools available to governments, regulators, legislators, policy-makers, courts, NGOs and corporate leaders to encourage multinational corporations to internalize the risk of their international operations and provide access to effective remedies for victims.
Keynote addresses by Justice Ian Binnie and Justice Louis LeBel, former judges of the Supreme Court of Canada
Panellists include leading academics and practitioners, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Robert Cribb and civic leaders, including Rachel Pulfer, executive director, Journalists of Human Rights.
