(p.119) 6 A Contribution of Human Rights Monitoring Bodies?
Corporate Accountability in International Environmental Law

Elisa Morgera

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an analysis of the growing case law on the environmentally irresponsible conduct of private companies. It first concentrates on national courts facing claims of international environmental NGOs and victim groups calling for the direct application of international environmental rules upon private corporations. It then turns to the international level, assessing the extent and the basis upon which human rights monitoring bodies consider the conduct of private companies. The chapter also analyses the legal arguments put forward in the pleadings before national and international courts, and concludes with an assessment of the contribution of this practice to the definition of corporate environmental accountability.

Keywords:   case law, national courts, international fora, NGOs, amicus curiae briefs
