Exploring Environmental Conflits between human rights and Business practices

The proceedings of the Conference of the IX Giornata di Studio “Oltre la globalizzazione” organised by the Società di Studi Geografici and titled “Boundaries/Confini” are now online.

This include my contribute with Federico Martellozzo “Beyond the mainstream of socio-environmental global governance. Human Rights, Conflits and Business”. The contribute advances a project proposal to investigate business companies’involved in environmental conflicts, disputes and controversies as a proxy for Environmental Human Rights (EHR) violations. This prefigures more serious responsibility which would be passible of international courts judgement in case a binding regulation for non-state actors will be issued by the U.N.
