Resumo

Embora seja cada vez mais comum encontrar, entre a doutrina mais especializada, aqueles que defendem o reconhecimento de obrigações legais obrigatórias para as empresas no que diz respeito aos direitos humanos, o debate permanece altamente polarizado. Colocando-nos no quadro das teorizações sobre governação global, nestas páginas defenderemos o pragmatismo dos Princípios de Ruggie e a sua conveniente complementaridade com um futuro tratado internacional. No entanto, se por um lado entendemos que o desenvolvimento e a implementação dos Princípios das Nações Unidas devem prosseguir através do reforço de uma abordagem baseada na vítima, por outro consideramos que os contornos de um futuro tratado internacional terão que ser delimitados tanto com um grau adequado de precisão técnica como com um nível suficiente de generalidade e abstracção. E, nesse sentido, serão formuladas algumas propostas de reforma da chamada Minuta 0 do futuro tratado internacional sobre negócios e direitos.
