Abstract


For too long, the violation of the economic, social and cultural rights of local communities in developing countries has continued with the complacency of the international community. It may not be wrong to contend that there is complicity on the part of the international community on this issue. No doubt measures have been taken and initiatives introduced at the international level to hold MNCs responsible for economic, social and cultural rights. However, it would be contended below that these measures and initiatives have been weak and platitudinous. What is required is affirmative and enforceable action. The UN Global Compact on MNCs (UN Global Compact), initiated in 1999 by former UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, is representative of such measures and initiatives. The drawback in its effectiveness is a reliance on voluntary compliance, for which it has been rightly criticised.
