With the wind of economic globalisation blowing across the globe, human rights are currently
exposed to violation in great proportions by powers other than the State, including multinational
corporations (MNCs). Unfortunately, a lot of States, most especially developing countries, including
Nigeria, hardly regulate the activities of the MNCs for several reasons, thus creating a regulatory
vacuum. Under these conditions, the existing catalogue of civil, political, social, cultural and economic
rights of the people, as expressed in both domestic and international human rights law, are adversely
affected by the activities of these MNCs. This book, developed from the author’s doctoral/PhD thesis
at Ghent University, Belgium critically examines, among others, the various human rights violations
and environmental damage associated with oil exploration activities in the oil-producing communities
of Nigeria, the international codes of conduct and norms, and the roles and responsibilities of the
major MNCs in respect of these violations. Coming at a time when governments worldwide are
striving hard to ensure corporate accountability for their activities in their host nations, this work is
unique in that it incisively analyses how the national and regional institutions could be strengthened to
provide effective protection against human rights abuses and ensure corporate accountability. It
discusses in-depth how the human rights concept of environmental protection can be used by victims
of environmental harm to promote and achieve environmental justice. The book will, therefore, be of
great interest to academics, researchers, legal practitioners, courts, legislators and policymakers,
non-governmental organisations (NGOs), human rights activists, multinational corporations and their
advisors, oil-rich nations, regional and international institutions, and students in law and other related
disciplines..
