The worldwide realization of human rights is not only a Government`s responsibility anymore. In modern society, multinational enterprises, non-governmental organizations, trade unions and employers` organizations play a (sometimes conflicting) role in this field as well. The interdependency and interrelationship between these actors is the subject of the present book.
The book is the result of a seminar, in 1999 organized by GLOBUS, Institute for Globalization and Sustainable Development at Tilburg University, and the Dutch Research School of Human Rights. Willem van Genugten, professor of International Law at Tilburg University and professor of Human Rights at Nijmegen University, and Ruud Lubbers, then professor of Globalization at Tilburg University and chairman of GLOBUS, and presently United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
