Business and Human Rights is a new frontier on the international stage. While domestic U.S. legislation has attempted to curb corruption recent court rulings have limited accountability for human rights violations by business entities.  This teleconference, explores whether international criminal law and international judicial mechanisms are the most effective and viable means to suppress and punish such violations. The speakers are thought leaders on anti-corruption efforts, human rights and responding to these pressing matters through the use of international criminal law and international courts. Is it time for an international anti-corruption court to prosecute individuals responsible for grand corruption and mass violations of human rights?
