There is a long history of corporate involvement in the large-scale atrocities that the world has witnessed. This trend has only increased as globalisation has spread and conflicts have become increasingly economically driven. Thus access to international markets and relationships with private business have become more important than ever to the world's worst human rights violators. Most discussions of corporate accountability treat corporate complicity exclusively within a broader framework of corporate behaviour. This paper takes an alternative approach. It analyses the potential of international law to address corporate complicity within frameworks that target the primary perpetrator, in this case via the actions of the Security Council.
