The Importance of Institutional Design in Governing Transnational Corporations

October 25, 2016

Talk "The Importance of Institutional Design in Governing Transnational Corporations" by Deval Desai October 25, 2016 / Cambridge, MA

October 25, 2016 at 12pm in WCC 3036 at Harvard Law School

The IGLP co-sponsored a lunch discussion in collaboration with the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School with IGLP Residential Fellow and Human Rights Program Research Fellow and S.J.D. candidate Deval Desai on regulating transnational corporations. Drawing on his research in northern Uganda and Sierra Leone, Deval examined the pitfalls of evidence-based approaches to the governance of transnational corporations, recast this governance challenge in terms of institutional design, and consider the lessons that human rights law might offer. Deval previously worked at the World Bank and UN as a rule of law reform expert in Nigera, Cameroon, Sierra Leone and Uganda.
