International Regulation of Multinational Corporations


  • Salil Tripathi


The purpose of this paper is to explore the role of multinational companies in zones of conflict. This issue has become increasingly sensitive over the last several years, particularly due to the issue of “conflict diamonds” coming from Angola and Sierra Leone, the proceeds from whose sales served to fund insurgency in these countries. The role and responsibilities of international corporations in this area have been studied. Do they initiate conflict? Do they prolong conflict? Can they play a role in mitigating or ending conflict? Where do gaps exist in the current international regulatory and policy framework? Are the tools that companies currently deploy sufficient? Are they necessary? How can we find ways forward to fill these crucial gaps? This paper seeks to provide a blueprint for tackling such questions.
