Summary
"Where does one situate business and human rights? From the perspective of law alone, business falls within the general sphere of private law, further broken down into discrete sub-spheres, particularly corporate law and commercial law. The human rights component is situated in constitutional and international law. Prima facie, 'business' and 'human rights' fall into distinct spheres of regulation and differ in their primary sources. If law were simply approached from a compartmentalized perspective, business would be of no relevance to human rights and vice versa. This, however, is artificial and is antithetical to holistic approaches to problem solving, not to mention the inter-connectivity of law.1 It is unfortunate that in simplifying the study of law through the creation of sub-disciplines, the emergence of sub-discipline expertise (e.g. labor law) has magnified the differences between them"-- ECIP Introduction
