Abstract: The daunting task of establishing liability of multinational enterprises (MNEs) for torts committed by a subsidiary has been the subject of ongoing debate.
Multinational Enterprises and Tort Liabilities employs an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective to shed light on why thus far, no innovative solutions have been identified. The thesis of the book is twofold. First, the legal conception of MNEs is said to misalign with the actual horizontal organizational and ownership structure of MNEs. Second, as a result, the liability theories that have
been developed on the basis of this legal concept are inapt to make for a just liability regime for tort victims, because they allow MNEs to effectively evade liability for torts arising out of the actions by their subsidiary companies. The book is structured in three parts: ‘Concept of Multinational Enterprise’,‘Exploring the Tort Liability of Multinational Enterprises’, and ‘A Way Forward’.
