Binding Corporate Rules

Lokke Moerel

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) as a form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It discusses to what extent data protection is covered by international soft law instruments that set guidelines for CSR, and if so, whether these have any repercussions for the BCR regime. This requires a discussion of human rights regulation, not so much in the context of whether these may be regulated by self-regulation, but whether the international instruments on CSR require that fundamental rights held by individuals should be viewed as imposing duties directly on multinationals, even for activities of these multinationals in countries that do not recognize such human rights.

Keywords:   Corporate Social Responsibility, human rights, self-regulation, due diligence, fundamental rights, multinationals, international soft law instruments
