Children's Rights and Business: Governing Obligations and Responsibility is a comprehensive legal inquiry into children's rights and business. Relying on insights from various disciplines, the book illustrates the need for a children-focused inquiry on business and human rights. An analysis of the norm legalization process around the regulation of business and human rights, particularly of children's rights follows the inquiry into existing hard and soft law regulatory frameworks on children's rights and business. The book goes on to evaluate the promise of these frameworks in light of globalized business transactions through the lens of in-depth case illustrations on children's rights in cotton and mineral supply chains and children's rights in large-scale energy and transport investment projects. Finally, it concludes with a normative outlook on governing the children's rights obligations of businesses and responsibility when violations occur, drawing on global governance approaches.
