Resumo

O possível escopo da proposta de “Instrumento Internacional Legalmente Vinculante de Corporações Transnacionais e outros Empreendimentos Comerciais em relação a Direitos Humanos” a ser discutida no Conselho de Direitos Humanos é uma das principais questões que determinarão a probabilidade de se chegar a um acordo efetivo em um tempo razoável. Este artigo argumenta que o escopo de tal Instrumento deveria ser definido tendo em vista o objetivo pretendido do dito instrumento: resolver as questões levantadas pela habilidade das corporações transnacionais (e outras empresas) em usar suas complexas estruturas para escapar da responsabilização por violações de direitos humanos.
