AMODU, Nojeem. Business and human rights versus corporate social responsibility: Integration for victim remedies. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.2, pp.853-876. ISSN 1996-2096.

It is a daunting task to discern between the several debates within and surrounding the corporate social responsibility and the business and human rights movements. At the basic level of objectives, for instance, questions arise as to which movement is substantively or comparatively broader in scope. In contributing to the debates, this article investigates their evolution and the intersections within the fields. It finds both movements to be inextricably-linked regulatory movements directed at establishing accountability for the impact of human rights violations. Using the human rights due diligence requirement elaborated by the influential United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights as a springboard, the article integrates the shared objective of the two inseparable movements, describing for scholarship and practice, the ambit of a victim-centred accountability remedial framework for business-related human rights abuses.

Keywords : accountability; business and human rights; corporate social responsibility; impacts; integration; shared objective; victim remedies.
