8 Indigenous Rights and Corporate Responsibility in Perspective
This book engages the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) from a wider, more pragmatic and multidimensional perspective of the indigenous people. James-Eluyode encapsulates the demands of indigenous rights as group rights within the context of a functional CSR and human rights developments. An ingenious treatise on the subject of global concern, the work is second to none.

Jide James-Eluyode’s Corporate Responsibility and Human Rights tackles some of the most difficult issues in contemporary international human rights law in a straightforward, thoughtful, and accessible manner. Carefully researched, clearly organized, and engagingly written, James-Eluyode addresses the dilemmas that arise when a body of law that has long focused on state obligations and individual rights is forced to confront tensions between corporate power and the collective rights of Indigenous peoples. Utilizing examples from communities in all parts of the world, he illustrates emerging legal norms and the contrasting ways in which they are often interpreted in developed and developing states. His presentation is thoughtful rather than polemical, providing a framework of great utility for readers across the spectrum, from students of international law and human rights, to corporate counsel, to Indigenous and/or environmental rights activists.
