About the Course
NLUJ is organising a Certificate Course on The Role of Transnational Codes of Conduct in the Energy Sector and Beyond: Do They Promote Socially Sustainable Globalization?
This course will look at the large body of transnational “soft law” that has developed in the petroleum industry and many other sectors to respond to the demands from citizens, governments and NGOs for better environmental, safety, labor and human rights standards in the global operations of multinational companies. This “soft law” often originates in codes of conduct or principles of good practice based on voluntary standards developed by working groups from industry, NGOs, intergovernmental organizations and academics.
The course will trace how this “soft” law can harden into mandated standards that companies must obey even though the codes and principles are “voluntary.” This process occurs through government regulation, the enforcement of contractual provisions requiring “good or best industry practice,” and in tort litigation. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using these codes of conduct as a type of transnational regulation of multinational companies?
Dates: February 14-16, 2020
