Complicity Issues and Redress for Victims in the Aftermath of Jesner v Arab Bank plc

Press/Media: Other


In April 2018, the US Supreme Court ruled that foreign corporations could not be held liable under the Alien Tort Claims Act for complicity in human rights abuses against foreign claimants.  This blog post was written in response to this and considers the impact of this decision on the future potential for remedying corporate harm through tort law, and of the wider implications on business and human rights.
